World football governing body FIFA has this week banned three Kenyan footballers from taking part in any football-related activities for a period of four years.

Moses Chikati, Festus Okiring, and Festo Omoto, all players in the Kenyan Premier League, were banned over allegations of match-fixing.

The three together with Ugandan footballer George Mandela were banned from playing football for life.



Chikati and Omoto play for Kakamega Homeboyz FC while Okiring recently signed to Western Stima FC after leaving Homeboyz FC. Mandela was dismissed from Kakamega Homeboyz in 2019 amid murmurs of involvement in match-fixing.

The FIFA Disciplinary Committee found the players guilty of having been involved in match manipulation in violation of art. 69 par. 1 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code.
Following an investigation carried out by Fifa its Integrity Department, George Mandela the Ugandan player who seemed to hold a central role in the conspiracy was banned from taking part in any kind of football-related activity at national and international level (administrative, sports or any other) for life, whereas the three Kenyan players were handed a four-year ban each.
