The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Betika National Super League clubs have called for the adherence of the Fifa directive on FKF polls to save the league.
The club officials said the second-tier league was privileged for the first time in Kenya’s history to secure a sponsor due to stability and if the Fifa directive was not observed may result in football instability and the league may suffer with the disgruntled sponsor Betika walking out.
Kibera All-Stars Secretary-General Daniel Magara called for adherence to Fifa’s directive insisting it will help instill confidence among the sponsors, more importantly, gaming firm Betika sponsors of the NSL.
“We have ten matches to go and this could be disrupted if the stalemate continues. We have had a good league, very competitive and the presence of a title sponsor has made it even more exciting,” said Magara.
Nairobi City Stars Chief Executive Officer and tv football analyst Patrick Korir said whatever decision taken by the government on this matter should strictly favor the game and not individual interests.
“For football to thrive, there has to be a conducive environment. Anyone following Kenyan football over the years should know that going to court to delay the electoral process has been a culture.
“However, our football is not in a crisis as some are claiming. This will pass but, in the meantime, we must be careful that whatever decisions we make at this time are not detrimental to the real stakeholder and that is the player,” said Korir.
Other clubs that supported the statement are Administration Police, Coast Stima, Fortune Sacco, Kenya Police, Muranga Seal, Mount Kenya United, Shabana, Ushuru, Vihiga United, and Vihiga Bullets.
“For continuity purposes, we need to abide by Fifa’s directive and when all is stable ensure the electoral process is concluded and we move forward,” NSL club officials said in unison.
Nyamweya ‘Sentenced to 350 years in Jail for Looting’
Controversial Exiled lawyer Dr Miguna Miguna has sentenced former Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president Sam Nyamweya to 350 years in jail.
Sitting in the Peoples’ Court from his base in Canada, the self-proclaimed General of the now non-existent National Resistance Movement (NRM) in a tweet ruled that Nyamweya should be jailed for looting the FKF coffers dry.
“This is an image of Sam Nyamweya, a thief who learnt his trade from Cyrus Jirongo at the YK 92, a violent, barbaric and criminal outfit Daniel Arap Moi established to help him cling to power,” he said.
“Nyamweya looted KFF to death. I hereby sentence this criminal to 350 years in jail,” ruled the NRM General Miguna Miguna in twitter.
The judgment comes a week after the former president declared his intentions in the media of vyeing for the FKF presidency in the forthcoming federation’s polls.
In the tweet, Miguna said they don’t respect looters and despots.
“We respect values and virtues, human beings who have integrity, transformative vision, value truth, are honest, respect human rights pursue justice and adhere strictly to the constitution and rule of law. We fight against cartelism ROBUSTLY,” outlined the lawyer.
Miguna’s verdict drew mixed reactions from Kenyans on twitter as the ruling went a buzz trending on social media.
On twitter, Thomas Otiende reacted by asking the self-styled general to issue an arrest warrant and the peoples’ power will handle it from this end (Kenya).
“350 years is too light for a man who looted public funds. I suggest that the sentence be doubled to 700 years so that he rots in jail forever,” reacted Nico Kyalo as Immanuel Mbindye tweeted,”350 is not enough, let us make them 351 years of hard labour.”
KOT Loyal 100 replied to Miguna’s tweet,”This is the perfect description of Sam Nyamweya I have seen this far. This mofo is the reason why Kenya football management and progress is so pathetic!! Veteran Kenyan football enthusiasts will confirm this. He should be hanged by the balls!!.”
“Why not sentence him for the rest of the millennium,” tweeted Kim@Wooraras as Jimmy Chege reacted, “Should be 1000 years like Judge ‘Mutabaruka’ does in the Peoples’ Court.
Covid ORGANICS tweeted,” This is like double sentencing: both on earth and hell.” as Daniel Thuo responds by saying, “U can imagine how he is yelling everywhere on his willingness to come back as football president to continue with his usual trade. What’s usually the problem with thieves? How can one explain their appetite??”
Lukoye Lukoye begged Miguna to be merciful to the former FKF chief,” General have some mercy 350 years, that is too much.” as bishorimtamu implored “Kkkkkkkk, general have mercy.”
However, Miguna was on the receiving end as Nickxalat Ndiangui replied, “Sentence yourself for what you did before leaving the country….Was he alone in YK92?? Don’t double standard issues Canadian Street bloger…. “
“You were there during this period. What did u do as MM? George Ogiro tweeted as Tribeless Kenyan replied,”What happened to your coming back? Some sentiments you make from afar sometimes seem like you are just relentless in justice yet cowardly giving in….Si utumie ata Meli bana.”
“350 years how? Stop being unrealistic General,” replied Peter Tosh.
Social Media a Buzz over Nyamweya’s Presidency Declaration
“It’s kind of ironical, he (Nyamweya) touched on the Women’s league yet it was non existent in the latter years of his term, the current regime is not perfect but has righted alot of wrongs from previous regimes, if there was a time I would have liked to play for the national team is currently, I envy them, the current regime is on the right track even though they still have a lot to do. I would give them another term in the spirit of consistency and continuity to realize the 1st term’s aspirations” Former KEFWA president Innocent Mutiso posted on a Whatsapp group
