Published

FKF Nairobi West Branch Chairman Caleb Malweyi has lauded the gains made by the current Federation under the leadership of Nick Mwendwa to boost football in the country.

Harambee Stars qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations for the first time in 15 years. The team came third in Group C, behind Algeria, and Senegal and ahead of Tanzania.

Harambee Starlets made their debut in the 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations after the current tenure re-introduced the FKF Women Premier League and Division One Leagues which gave life to the then dying senior women’s national team.

The team also closed the year 2019 as champions of the CECAFA Women Championships in Tanzania for the first time ever.

The current regime actualized the inconceivable idea of having a junior national team and developed the National Center of Excellence that harbors the team and helps nurture the young players who will then be pooled to the National Senior team, Harambee Stars.

“We have made gains in women football, and youth football under the able leadership of Nick Mwendwa. We want to build on these gains in the coming four years,”said Chairman Malweyi.
