Football Kenya Federation has postponed three Betking Premier League matches, two of which were set for the western side of the country this weekend.
This follows a government order that banned sports activities and imposed a 7pm-4am curfew in Kisumu and 12 other neighbouring counties to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the region.
“This Order shall apply during the hours of darkness between seven o’clock in the evening and four o’clock in the morning with effect from the 18th of June, 2021 and shall remain in effect for a period of thirty days thereof,” reads part of the order by the Ministry of Interior.
