Last evening, 21st of April 2017, we received official communication from the Football KENYA Federation regarding Vincent Oburu. In its ruling, the Federation punished the player for allegedly double signing by de-registering him for the first leg of the KPL 2017 season. He will however be allowed to be registered in the June window thus he will be available to play for AFC Leopards SC from June 2017.
