Transparency: FKF attracts Sponsorships

Published

on

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has attributed transparency and accountability in its management as the key to the recent interest expressed by corporates to promote soccer activities in the country.

This revelations come in the wake of the signing of back to back patnerships with betting firms to fund football activities.

“We are committed to transparency and accountability and this is demonstrated by the trust such corporates as Odibets and Betika have shown in us, by extending financial support to the grassroots through the federation,” said FKF president Nick Mwendwa.

Last month, Betika penned a three year Ksh90 million sponsorship deal to fund the National Super League (NSL) before OdiBets came on board on Thursday, November 5th, to sponsor grassroot football through the FKF County leagues to a tune of Ksh127 million in a partnership to last for three years.

Safaricom in partnership with the Spanish top tier league La Liga is promoting youth football through the Chapa Dimba tournament.

Some of the corporates that have come on board during Mwendwa’s first term tenure are Sportpesa and Bamba Sport tv.

“FKF remains open to scrutiny and we invite more corporates from far and wide to come on board and partner with us in our football development agenda,” he said.

The president said they have been accounting for every penny and the federation will take action against any individual including himself who tries to embezzle sponsorship monies.
Mwendwa expressed the federation’s happiness in the trust and confidence that the corporate world has in FKF.

“I must thank Odibets for coming in at this crucial time in football where the sport is facing financial constraints due to hard economic times bedeviling companies,” said the FKF President on the sidelines of the launch held at a Nairobi Hotel.

The FKF Boss presided over the launch of a KES 127 Million 3-year partnership for the FKF County Leagues, on Thursday, where he emphasized the Federation’s commitment to transparency and accountability.

Mwendwa called on more corporates from far and wide to explore avenues of partnering with the federation by embracing some of its products for sponsorships which may give the companies returns on investment through brand visibility.

Court orders former FKF Boss Nyamweya to pay Journalist Sh10 Million for Defamation

By

Former Football Kenya Federation (FKF) chairman has been ordered to pay sports journalist Omullo Okoth Sh10million for defamation.

Omullo Okoth moved to court in 2015 to sue former FKF chairman Sam Nyamweya for defamation over an article he wrote in a weekly publication.
Confirming the move to Kenya Online News, Okoth said:” Justice has been served. That particular article really ruined my reputation as it claimed that I had been bribed to offer certain favors.”
Okoth also said FKF has been enjoined in the suit as the statement which appeared in the weekly publication was written on the federation’s letterhead.
“I have received a ruling against Nyamweya and the federation and my lawyers will be serving them soon.”

Contacted for comment FKF President Nick Mwendwa said he had received the ruling but insisted that the federation should not have been enjoined.
“You cannot sue an entity for defamation. We have asked our lawyers to appeal against the ruling and strike out our name from the suit. They should go for the individual who defamed them and not the federation,” he said.

“Mombasa falls under my FKF South Coast jurisdiction which i chair, and therefore am authoritatively stating there’s no parrallel football administration and Mombasa county is chaired by Lilliian Nandudu,” he asserted.

Mghendi the Mombasa County Football Association (MCFA) is a welfare group for election losers, former and suspended officials who are seeking refuge and relevance through the backdoor even if it means leading a ghost or non-existent organization.

” Goshi Ali who was suspended in 2017 by the federation’s South Coast branch for participating in the unsanctioned Extreme Sports organized tournament but in the spirit of inclusivity was allowed to contest in the last FKF Mombasa county elections but lost to the outgoing South Coast branch Secretary Lilian Nandundu’ twice,” said Mghendi.
