Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president Nick Mwendwa is to appear before a parliamentary committee over funding crisis.

Mwendwa will appear before the Parliamentary Sports Committee chaired by Machakos Town Member of Parliament Victor Munyaka to shed light on the impasse and challenges the federation faces from the government over funding.

Mwendwa will be accompanied by a powerful delegation of the national men’s and women’s teams Harambee Stars and Starlets respectively who have been victims of the government’s lethargy in funding their programs

The FKF president will be facing the parliamentarians a week after attacking the Ministry of Sports Principle Secretary Ambasadeur Kirimi Kaberia for frustrating the federation over funding.

A similar thin veiled attack against Kaberia was made by the Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) vice chairman Thomas Opiyo who accused the PS of being the stumbling block towards their funding.

The appearance before the parliamentarians comes in the backdrop of various sporting federations including ootball Kenya Federation (FKF), Kenya Hockey Union (KHU), Kenya Rugby Union (KRU), Athletics Kenya (AK) and the Kenya Table Tennis Association (KTTA), jointly petitioned the Parliamentary Sports Committee expressing their misgivings over the lack of support and feedback from the ministry in regards to funding of activities of national teams.

Nyamweya booed in Kibra By election ODM Rally

Published

on

As the Kibra by elections campaigns came to a close former Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president Sam Nyamweya was booed.

Nyamweya was booed by the audience attending an Orange Democratic Party (ODM) led by Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions Gor Mahia Organizing Secretary Judith Nyangi.

Nyangi led the crowd at booing and waving no at Nyamweya after he was introduced and invited on stage by the Master of Ceremony to address the gathering.

Nyamweya was drowned in the boos as he tried to speak against the former national football team Harambee Stars captain McDonald Mariga who is the Jubilee party’s Kibra by elections candidate.

Nyamweya was trying to say that Mariga has not done much for football in Kibra where he never assisted the sport in the area despite earning a hefy salary as a professional footballer during his hey playing days.

After the rally, Nyangi said Nyamweya was being a hypocritical after bringing Kenya’s football on its deathbed and yet has the guts to criticise someone else for not doing much for soccer.

Mariga who was the first East African to win the Uefa Champions League in 2011 playing for Italian outfit Inter Milan battles ODM’s Imran Okoth and Amani National Congress (ANC) aspirant Eliud Owalo among other 21 candidates for the Kibra by election seat scheduled for Thursday, November 7.
