Bidco United to Formally Protest Bandari Loss in Which They Were Served Four Red Cards

Just two days after their coach cried foul on social media, Bidco United are in the process of final a formal complain to the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Caretaker Committee in protest of their 2-1 loss away to Bandari on Saturday.

Bidco were appalled by the officiating decisions at Mbaraki on Saturday and head coach Anthony Akhulia says they will not be letting that pass as poor officiating claims to rock the Kenyan football.

“We have to protest the result, we do not necessarily want to be given points but I wouldn’t want another team to come to Mombasa and get the same treatment. We want teams to come to Mombasa and play fairly and even if it’s losing, let it be just,” said Akhulia said in an interview with Citizen Digital.

The game at Mbaraki was marred with controversy especially the second half as tempers boiled in both camps and referee Hosea Omondi brandished cards.

With Bidco leading 1-0, Bandari earned a penalty which Kevin Kimani converted to equalize before Andrew Juma scored a late winner.

Bidco captain was controversially sent off, Akhulia and goal keeping coach Collins Odhiambo protesting the decision only for the pair to also be sent off.

That was not all, a melee ensued after the final whistle, the visiting camp aggrieved and the referee did not shy away from handing Bidco goalkeeper Brian Opondo a red card after he approached him in protest.

“Ladies and gentlemen, what I have seen in Bandari today is despicable. A good match changed immediately we scored our goal, the referees changed. Everything changed for the worse, our crime was scoring,” Akhulia ranted in a post on Facebook after the game.
