Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has been ordered to pay ex-Harambee Stars and Gor Mahia coach Bobby Williamson Sh55m for wrongful dismissal in 2016.
The Sports Dispute Tribunal made the ruling on Friday, which comes barely a month after yet another former Stars coach Adel Amrouche was awarded Sh108 for unfair dismissal.
Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa, while speaking to Citizen TV on friday, confirmed the latest developments, and indicated they will appeal the ruling.
"We will appeal that ruling," he said during the interview.
Williamson, who has also coached Kenyan Champions Gor Mahia was shown the door by Mwendwa in 2016, just a week after assuming office as part of the many changes.
He rushed to court and sued the federation over wrongful dismissal, and the case has been dragging since then.
