In addition,  the Ex- Harambee Stars defender has been fined Ksh.1.5 million.

"Moreover, the Kenyan player Mr Geroge Owino Audi has been banned from taking part in any kind of football-related activity at both national and international level (administrative, sports or any other) for a period of ten (10) years,"
