The FKF Player Status Committee has ruled that Kevin Okoth has a valid contract with Tusker FC.
This is following a matter brought to the committee by KPL, seeking clarification on the status of the midfielder.
“Having reviewed the documents submitted by the two clubs, and having considered submissions made by all the parties, including the player himself, the Committee’s decision is that the player has a three year’s contract with Tusker FC running from January 2018 to 30th December 2020, and the player was loaned to Western Stima FC for a period of one year ending December 2018,” read part of the ruling by the FKF Player Status Committee.
“In view of the same, the player ought not to have played for Western Stima FC in their match against Tusker FC as per the loan agreement,” he added.
Western Stima had earlier on December 16, 2018, edged out Tusker FC 1-0 at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu, a match Kevin Okoth took part in.
