High court on Monday discharged interim orders barring Kenya Premier League from organizing parallel league matches.
Justice Roselyn Aburili found and held that Football Kenya Federation had no capacity to bring proceedings against KPL whom it obtained orders against.
The judge said the interim orders obtained by FKF on 20 March were unlawful and the same are set aside.
The court while making a ruling on the preliminary objection raised by KPL against the suit filed by FKF said that the court is concerned with FIFA failing to solve the dispute between the two organizations.
The judge declined to struck out the suit has sought by KPL instead said the federation officials had amended the same to make it sustainable in law.
Justice Aburili further declined to order FKF to deposit money in court being security for cost, saying that it’s upon the court to decide who’s to pay costs upon hearing parties.
The court directed that FKF officials are at liberty to seek interim relief now that they are properly suited to bring proceedings against defendants.
The judge further found it has jurisdiction to hear the dispute as opposed by KPL, saying that Kenya referees association and Sports Kenya were properly enjoined in the suit.
