Oguda explains bowing to court

Kenyan Premier League managing director Jack Oguda has come out to clearly explain why he he had to accept a court injunction from one of the AFC Leopards factions embroiled in a bitter battle to take over the reins of the team.

This comes after a group of purported fans invaded the FKF offices asking the federation to rein in the managing director but at the same time failing to understand the importance of honouring a legally binding court order.

"I am a law abiding citizen and at all times i must respect the laws that govern the country when managing the Kenyan Premier League.We have to respect legally binding decisions of the courts by applying these laws "

"We were assured that proper hosting arrangements were made by the legally recognised officials of the AFC Leopards. I cannot have anything again any AFC Leopards side on a personal capacity and that should be understood by all the fans since i am not party to the dispute but just discharging my duties"Jack Oguda told SuperSport.com

Oguda further intimated that that it was an insincere act by some people who have been misinforming their fans about what transpired and failing to educate them about the importance of respecting court decisions.

The plaintiffs in the suit include Sammy Maina Washiko,Evelyne Wairimu,Henry Wasilwa,Mathew Opwora, and defendants are the current chairman Alex Ole Magelo,George Wesonga,and Josephat Bukachi.
