Kenyatta University’s Blak Blad will need to look for an alternative venue to host their home matches after the Kenya Rugby Union Independent Judicial committee handed them a seven-match home ban.

The club’s misconduct was failure to provide adequate security leading to pitch invasion by the Club fans which is a breach of regulation 20.4 of the rugby laws. The incidences occurred during their final match of the regular season  pitting Kabras on 29 February which was abandoned three minutes into the second half.

Disallowed try

The referee disallowed Blad’s try which was scored just after the second half restart,  calling for the penalty to be taken at the right mark. The fans would cause trouble and their players are said to have refused to resume play.

The judicial decision reads:  “The Club is barred from hosting six (6) home games during the KRU 2020/2021 season. For the avoidance of doubt, the sanction shall take effect from start of the competition they will be competing in.”

The ban was increased to seven matches with the panel taking into account aggravating circumstance such as failure to comply to requirements of the 2019 Judicial decision. This ban means Blad may be able to host just one match in the backyard next season.

“Taking into account the aggravating circumstances as outlined below, the Judicial Committee enhances the sanction by one (1) game to seven (7) games: a) Providing inaccurate and/or misleading information about previous disciplinary record of the Club with regard to previous disciplinary proceedings in breach or R.20.4(e);
b. Failure to comply with requirements of the suspended sentence from the Judicial Decision of 6th April 2019 arising from a misconduct hearing of 2nd April 2019.” the decision further reads.

The Club has right to appeal the decision.
