According to the Kakamega Homeboyz chairman the league is facing to many challenges and should be temporarily stopped speaking to Goal the chairman Cleophas Shimanyula has claimed there are too many problems in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL).

The KPL will be entering matchday six on October 19 and 20 and Shimanyula feels the competition must be halted until a viable solution is found.

The Kakamega Homeboyz have also petitioned the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) to suspend the competition until a solution to the financial crisis in the league is solved.

An official petition initiated by Kakamega Homeboyz and supported by six more clubs cites five reasons why the league matches should be suspended.

They want the KPL to convene a special Governing Council meeting to discuss the way forward.

With five rounds of matches played so far, match officials are yet to be paid a single penny, KPL is yet to find a sponsor and have no funds for administrative costs, clubs receive no grants while one walkover – Sony versus AFC Leopards, has already been awarded due to the challenges.
