The Kenya Basketball Federation has postponed its leagues restart date to February 6.

The decision to postpone the leagues which were primed tip off on 16th January 2021 was reached after an executive meeting over the weekend.

The major reason for the postponement is to give way for national elections of federation officials which will take place on 23rd of January 2021 at Nyayo Gymnasium according to leagues fixture secretary Joseph Amoko.

“We thought it was wise for us to have elections so stakeholders can give their views and then we have a meeting with team managers then we proceed to start the league,” Amoko explained

Amoko added that team managers will meet on Saturday 30th January to plan for a pre-season tournament.

The meeting is intended to put into place measures of curbing the Covid-19.

“During the team managers meeting which will happen after the elections, we will be discussing ways of curbing the Covid-19 pandemic during the league to avoid players getting exposed and to put measures into place,” Amoko added.

The previously released fixture will remain in place with just the dates being adjusted.

The KBF leagues failed to take place last year due to Covid-19 pandemic which halted sporting events not just in the country but globally.
