In Summary

  1. Gor Mahia FC have won the Kenyan Premier League title for a record-stretching 18th time after Bandari FC, the last challenger with a mathematical chance of overhauling their lead, crashed out of the title race.
  2. Bandari faced a must-win situation against Mathare United and hope Gor lose against Vihiga United to keep them in the race but they ultimately let it slip following their barren draw on Wednesday

Gor Mahia FC have won the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) title for a record-stretching 18th time after Bandari FC, the last challenger with a mathematical chance of overhauling their lead, crashed out of the title race.

Bandari faced a must-win situation against Mathare United and hope Gor lose against Vihiga United to keep them in the race but they ultimately let it slip following their barren draw at the Kasarani Stadium on Wednesday.

It meant Gor’s lead at the top opened up to seven points before they even kicked a ball, confirming them as champions for the third straight year with two rounds before the season ends.

Gor later drew 1-1 with Vihiga United at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos with Amos Kigadi’s towering header cancelling out Charles Momanyi’s first half effort.

The champions will lift the trophy at the same venue on Saturday when they play Posta Rangers in the penultimate round of the KPL season.
