Stop the KBF playoffs - Jan 11, 2017

World Hope Basketball Club wants the Kenya Basketball Federation (KBF) men's Division II playoffs stopped. Already, the playoffs have reached the semifinals stage and are set to resume this weekend after the Christmas break. The club has sued KBF at the Sports Disputes Tribunal claiming they were wrongly omitted from the playoffs. They have until Friday to serve KBF and teams in the playoffs as interested parties. The dispute will be mentioned on January 17. In a sworn statement by team manager Eric Kayere, the club is challenging two forfeited games that saw them miss the playoffs. In the statement, World Hope state they showed up at Upper Hill School for their game against MKU Thika on August 7, 2016 but were not allowed to play for non-payment of league fees.
In the second game against Baraka Xtreme on May 22, the club claims they did not receive fixtures from the federation through e-mail thus were unaware of the planned fixture. They now want the playoffs fixtures and results set aside and the two fixtures rescheduled. Samuel Muthomi Gichunge, the lawyer representing World Hope said their initial attempts to have the matter resolved at the federation level were futile. 'We initially filed an appeal with KBF, paid the necessary fees and gave them 21 days to constitute a complaints and appeals committee but they did not do so,' he submitted. 'In our appeal, we had asked for the playoffs to be suspended until this matter is concluded but they proceeded.'
The women's Premier League semifinal playoffs will also resume this weekend with United States International University- Africa (USIU-A) and Equity Bank playing from Saturday for five consecutive days. Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) and Co-operative Bank will play games three, four and five in Mombasa with KPA leading 2-0.
