NB: in 2003, the 4 semi-finalists of the President's Cup withdrew from
    the KFF and continued with their 'Transparency Cup' while the KFF
    continued their tournament with already eliminated clubs.

[*1] Mumias' win was revoked following a bribery scandal in the league; it is
     not clear whether Coast Stars were awarded the Cup.
[*2] a rival faction within the KFF (recognised by the Kenya government but not
     by FIFA) have awarded the cup to Coast Stars (Mombasa) after ordering a
     replay of their semifinal second leg against Tusker (who did not show, as
     they had already lost the final) and then scheduling a final against
     World Hope for which the latter did not show
