Blak Blad tactician Williams Motto has reacted to the decision by Kenya Rugby Union’s Independent Judicial Committee to hand the side a seven-match home ban.
The decision means that the side might be able to use their Kenyatta University Grounds once come next season.
Motto says they will respect the decision made by the Committee and they are engaging stakeholders to know the next steps to follow.
“It’s a decision which has been made by Judicial committee, we respect it . As a club we understand there are better ways and right protocol to be followed during such times and we are currently engaging with stakeholders of the club so as to settle on the best choice before the dust settles,” Motto told Scrummage.

“We are seeking advice as we forge ahead and see how we can form formidable forces that might catapult us to greater heights as we explore different options;then settle for the best one,” he added.
Though the tactician regrets the decision which will lock them out of their backyard for sometime, he admits there is need for each club to be responsible for their fans actions.
“So for now all I have to say is we regret the decision which was made and we have to accept it for now. Again for any actions of our fans and players as a club we have to be responsible for the same and we shall take full responsibility. On behalf of the club we regret what happened; whether we had control over them or not.”
Safer for all
He has assured the players and stakeholders of the game that they will work towards making the the venue safer for all.
“We just want to tell all the players, and match officials and other stakeholders of the game that as a club we are currently doing everything we can to make the game safer for all stakeholders of the game. I am hopeful that we shall be better and just like the Phoenix we shall rise from the ashes.” He concluded.
