Leadership wrangles at AFC Leopards have taken a new twist with Football Kenya Federation (FKF) appointing a care-taker management committee to run the club’s affairs.

FKF announced the formation of the committee after an Emergency Meeting Tuesday at the Nyayo National Stadium.

In a media dispatch, the federation said the seven-member committee, which will also include the team’s technical bench, will take charge of the team until the current matter affecting their leadership is resolved.

“For the interest of protecting the players and to allow them continue participating in the Kenyan Premier League, Football Kenya Federation has appointed a management committee to ensure that the players play their matches as per the ongoing fixtures”, the statement read in part.

Last week a splinter group of the club officials, led by Sammy Aina, obtained a court order, barring the current office bearers under incumbent chairman Alex Ole Magelo from transacting business on behalf of the club until the case is heard and determined.

The development has thrown the club’s operations into a spin leading to the cancellation of last Saturday’s scheduled match against Sony Sugar, for what KPL termed as security reasons.

More apprehension descended on the club on Monday after Lady Justice Joyce Khaminwa of Milimani Law Courts adjourned the ruling of the case to May 23 due to backlog of cases.

But FKF has requested the parties at the centre of the feud to seek other dispute resolution avenues and not the courts.

The federation further warmed that it would take serious action against anyone who would interfere with the work of the committee.

The federation proposed the club elections be held before the second leg of the league kicks off.

The committee will comprise: Hussein Terry - NEC member, Doris Petra - NEC member Patrick Naggi - FKF technical director, Jack Oguda - KPL Chief Executive Office, Lillian Nzile - SSMB representative, Two members from Mumias Sugar Limited, AFC Leopards technical bench.

 Meanwhile, a top place first leg finish will be at stake when Leopards and current league leaders Sofapaka face off Wednesday evening at the Nyayo National Stadium. Long time leaders Leopards surrendered pole position to Sofapaka at the weekend under controversial circumstances.

With Leopards’ match against Sony Sugar called off at the eleventh hour, Sofapaka climbed to the summit with a 2-0 win over Muhoroni Youth.

The win brought Soafapaka's points tally to 29 ahead of Tusker on 28 points.

The brewers had provisionally gone top of the table on Friday night with a 2-0 win over Chemelil Sugar. Leopards, who have not won in their last three matches, are third with 27 points, though Jan Koops’ men have a game in hand.

Sofapaka coach Salim Ali has indicated that they will play cautiously against Leopards.

“Leopards is a good team with good players. We expect a tough match because they are a wounded side”, Ali said. A win for either side will almost certainly guarantee a top place first leg finish.

The other match lined up for tomorrow will be a clash between the fast-improving Gor Mahia and Western Stima at the Nairobi City Stadium from 3pm.
