Kakamega County Secondary Schools football champions Musingu High are under the radar of the Quality Assurance and Standards Officers for allegedly fielding ineligible players during the recently held county school games
According to the Kakamega County Secondary Schools Sports Association Chairman Lazarus Makokha, Musingu’s case ruling will be made in “the next 48 hours” after an aggrieved Kakamega High lodged an appeal alleging the presence of Kisumu Day student in the Musingu team.
“There are allegations that Musingu fielded a student purported to be schooling at Kisumu Day High but as we things are right now, investigations are underway and when the ruling is out we shall openly brief you accordingly and also give you the way forward.
For now, people should stop spreading rumours and information that is not authentic, that is degrading some schools or teams from schools yet we participated in the right manner and got worthy representatives whom we believe we’ll fly the flag of Kakamega County high,”Makokha said.
Makokha has however asserted that unless otherwise, Musingu High and the little known Shamberere Boys will represent the county in the Western Region School Games.
“Our school games went well but many have been asking who will represent the county because of that unconfirmed information.
As I speak now, the schools that will represent the county in the Western Region Secondary School Games in football are champions Musingu High and first runners up Shanderema High,” added Makokha.
Kakamega High who appealed Musingu’s progress finished in fourth place after losing 2-0 to another surprise package Lugusi from Kabras in a third-place play off at Bukhungu Stadium.
“Kakamega schools are the ones who launched the appeal against Musingu which is under investigation. But for the rest is hearsay and no one has come out to appeal against any other school in the county meaning they are all satisfied,” Makokha concluded.
