The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has been disbanded and its President Nick Mwendwa and his colleagues have been sent packing with immediate effect, according to Kenya’s Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed.
This follows the recommendations of the Sports Registrar’s inspection group, which was tasked last month with conducting an audit of the Federation.
FKF has been dealing with a number of administrative concerns, including the misuse of government funds.
The report also recommends that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the National Intelligence Service (NIS), and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) conduct additional investigations to determine the extent to which FKF funds were misappropriated, with the goal of prosecuting those found responsible.
Amina also created a 15-member provisional committee to oversee football in Kenya, led by retired Justice Aaron Ringera.
Other members of the committee are retired General Moses Oyugi, Fatma Adan, Philip Musyimi, Anthony Isayi, Elisha Kiplangat, Hassan Mahmoud Hajji, Fredrick Lekesike, Ali Amour, former FKF vice president Titus Kasuve, former Kenya Rugby Union bosses Mwangi Muthee and Richard Omwela, Kenya Police FC head coach John Bobby Ogolla, AFC Leopards legend JJ Masiga and Harambee Starlets forward Neddy Atieno.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
