Sports CS Amina Mohamed says FKF clean-up is unstoppable

Sports CS Amina Mohamed says nothing will stop her ministry and the government from continuing with the clean-up exercise at the disbanded Football Kenya Federation (FKF).

This comes barely a few days after world football governing, Fifa, suspended FKF from all international football activities citing government interference.

The CS disbanded the federation on November 11 2021 over allegations of misappropriation of funds and immediately appointed a Caretaker Committee to manage football affairs in the country for a period of six months.

But despite two of Kenya’s women teams (Harambee Starlets and Kenya U17) recently being locked out of international competition due to the impasse, Amina says she will engage Fifa after they have finished to clean-up the federation.

“Generally, it’s something that we expected. My pleasant surprise was that it came so late which means Fifa to some extent also saw the need for us to do the clean-up. So like I said, we are going to clean-up the house and we are not turning back, as soon as we are ready we will of course invite Fifa. We are scheduled to have some discussions over the next few days and then wait for the mandate to be concluded,” said Amina.

“There was a mandate that was given to the Caretaker Committee, it’s a very clear one. It has to be concluded before any changes to the manner in which we are going to conduct this happens. After we are ready, we will have conversations with Fifa, we will agree on the way forward together and if necessary we will conduct some of the next steps together. But we cannot do that until we are ready.”

The Caretaker Committee’s term is set to expire on May 11.
