Kenya Dissolves Football Association Over Corruption

Kenya’s government has dissolved Football Kenya Federation (FKF) accusing it of deep-seated corruption.

Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed said on Thursday that the government has formed an fifteen-man caretaker committee that would run the sport.

The committee will be chaired by retired Justice Aaron Ringera and its expected to run the East African nation football for the next six-months.

“Over the past few years, the Football Kenya Federation has faced several governance issues that have been of great concern to the Ministry. First, the Football Kenya Federation has failed to account for all the monies allocated to it by the Government,” Amina stated.

“All beneficiaries of the Fund are as a matter of course trained on how to apply, utilize and account for the funds. The beneficiaries are also aware that they are required to fully disclose any financial assistance received from other sponsors. Football Kenya Federation has fallen short of this requirement.”

Other members of the committee are General Retired Moses Oyugi, Fatma Adan, Philip Musyimi, Anthony Isayi, Elisha Kiplagat and Hassan Haji.

Fredrick Tureisa, Mwangi Muthee, Neddy Atieno, Ali Amour, Titus Kasuve, Richard Omwela, Bobby Ogolla and JJ Masiga are also part of the 15-man team.

With this decision, Kenya appear candidates for sanctions by FIFA, which frowns on government interference in the affairs of its federations.

A ban on Kenya will mean all clubs from the country will not be able to compete in Caf inter-club competitions while national teams cannot participate in CAF and FIFA sanctioned games.
