Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Sony Sugar has dropped its complaints against league champions Tusker FC whom they had accused of tapping four of their players.

Their alarm over illegal approach of their players by the brewers had already been forwarded to the Independent Disciplinary and Complaints Committee (IDCC) for hearing in the week starting Monday 10 July, 2017.

Middle ground

But, as stated by KPL's official portal, that case will proceed no more as Sony Sugar has officially dropped their charges against Tusker having 'amicably' reached a middle ground on the matter. 

"Sony Sugar have written to the Independent Disciplinary and Complaints Committee seeking to have their case against Tusker for illegal player tapping terminated,"

"Sony Sugar FC chairman Paul Orato informed IDCC on Friday that his club and Tusker had amicably resolved the matter and the sugar millers were, thus, no longer willing to continue with the case." said a statement on

Player cards

Despite the case being dropped, Tusker still has a case at IDCC. The team failed to produce Player License cards of the entire team during a game against hosts Zoo FC at the Green Stadium in Kericho on May 10, a game they went on to win 2-0. 

The home club complained of the same in good time and made it official before kickoff, one they sent to the KPL after the game calling for a reversal of the result from the match.
