Mathare United Coach Francis Kimanzi

Mathare United Coach Francis Kimanzi has been handed a one month touchline ban and ordered to pay a 50,000 Kenyan shillings fine by the league’s Independent Disciplinary and Complaints Committee (IDCC).

Kimanzi was found guilty of refusing to leave the technical area as ordered by the referee and holding up play for 17 minutes during Mathare United’s league game against Sofapaka at Nyayo stadium on the 5th of November when game ended in a 2-2 draw.
