- Moses Adagala, the Chemelil Sugar co-owner, anxiously wait to discover their fate in the national league 2019-2020 season. The club’s pursuit of success has been grounded by Football Kenya Federation’s decision to halt the season
Chemelil football club was relegated to the National Super League following Mwendwa’s announcement. Adagala has been wise to keep a close eye on the situation after the tribunal temporarily suspended the FKF declaration. The case is set to be heard on May 26
The club’s co-owner expresses confidence in the tribunal’s ability to solve the matter hoping that declaration would be rendered void. He unapologetically condemned Mwendwa for taking the matter to his hand underrating the mandate of the league body.
“Mwendwa has no powers to conclude the KPL competition and I have faith that the tribunal will reverse his decision which was made in bad faith,” Adagala said.
“Even if it was necessary to finish the season, he still can’t make that decision since the law reserves the right to end a season prematurely to the NEC who were kicked out of office after their tenure expired,” he explained.
If the league will be nullified and the right procedure followed, Chemelil is set to escape relegation. Adagala affirmed that team was gearing up for a top ten finish.
“When I took over, I invested in excess of Sh5 million in the club and managed to arrest the poor run. The club had only managed to gather four points but within a short time, we managed to double our tally and we were keen to beat the drop,” he said.
“Should the court order the remaining matches to be played, we will be targeting to finish within the top ten brackets. We just have to win our five home matches and try to reap positive results in the four away matches,” he concluded.
