Kenya Extends Mandate For FKF Transition Committee Again

Outgoing Sports Cabinet Secretary, Amina Mohamed,  has extended the mandate of Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Transition Committee for the next two months.

The initial period had ended on August 13 and with no recognised organisation set to run football in the country, the outgoing government opted to extend its term.

The committee which came into office on May 13 is backed by a seven-member secretariat headed by journalist Lindah Oguttu.

It has been at the helm of the country’s football for six months since CS Amina disbanded the Nick Mwendwa-led federation last November.

“The Transition Committee shall hold office for a period of two months with effect from 16th August , 2022 and shall be assisted in the execution of its mandate by the secretariat. All communication to the committee shall be addressed to the chairperson,” read the gazette notice in part.

The team is tasked to continue the smooth running of football in the country continues until the elections are in place to elect new officials.

Four days ago, the committee released provisional fixtures for Premier League that kicks off on September 10.

However, a number of clubs have confirmed they are waiting for a new government to come in and give direction on football affairs in the country.

Kenya is currently serving a ban from all football activities related to the organization by FIFA owing to what they described as government interference.
