Kimanzi slapped with fine



Former Harambee Stars head coach Francis Kimanzi has been handed a US$10,000 (about KSh800,000) fine and a four-match suspension by the Confederation of African Football (Caf).

The ban was for throwing a water bottle at a match official during an Africa Cup of Nations qualification match against Togo, played on 17 June 2012.

In a release of sanctions by Caf’s disciplinary board after a meeting held at their headquarters in Cairo on 26 November, it is indicated that Kimanzi will not be allowed to serve in four matches, “in the frame of all Caf competitions”.

In the same release, and after assessing the match’s documents, the Togolese federation has also been slapped with a US$10,000 fine after their fans invaded the pitch to celebrate their victory.

“Togolese spectators invaded the pitch after the final whistle to celebrate their joy, which put the players and officials at risk,” read a section of the statement.

“The board suspended the totality of 10,000 USD sanction on condition that the spectators are not found guilty of similar incidents for a period of one year.”

Kenya, who had gone into the match bearing a 2-1 advantage, lost the second tie 1-0. Kimanzi has since been replaced in the Kenya hotseat by former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Henri Michel.
