Sports tribunal suspends basketball leagues matches

The Kenya basketball Federation  has suspended all league action following an order from the Sports Disputes Tribunal 

The leagues started last weekend, but will now be put on hold until a case filed at the John Ohaga-led Tribunal is heard and determined.

A petitioner, Dennis Opiyo, got the orders from the Tribunal, the issue emanating from KBF’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on May 14.

“The petitioner had earlier gone to the Tribunal over issues on the AGM. The Tribunal asked us to undertake some actions which we did. They required us to submit copies of audited accounts as well as seek ratification from the Sports Registrar on the list of delegates. We did these but again, he was back at the Tribunal, hence this order,” Kisoi told the media
The Secretary General Ambrose Kisoi has now written to clubs informing them of the decision to suspend games, until the case is determined. 

We have forwarded the issue to our legal department but of course we have to obey court orders. We hope however, that this can be resolved soonest,” added Kisoi.

The case will be mentioned at the Tribunal on the  19 of this month.
