The premier further urged the ministry to give a directive on the fate of fans who had paid tickets for the match. Speaking in parliament, Mr Majaliwa urged Tanzanians to bear with the ministry time as it works on the modalities of the fixture.The much-awaited clash between the perennial soccer enemies christened Kariakor Derby was postponed on Saturday after Yanga refused to honour the game, citing changes to kick-off time. The match scheduled to begin at 5 PM, but TFF pushed the game to 7 PM two hours later, a move that irked Yanga.
Yanga quoted article 15 (10) of the Tanzanian soccer rules in their objection. According to the regulation, changes to the match start time must be communicated to all parties 24 hours in advance.
