Things are getting thicker for Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwendwa day by day.
On Monday, November 18, a section of football fans has staged a mega demonstration in Nairobi with demands for Mwendwa’s exit.
The hundreds of fans, who started their demos in the city’s CBD and are understood to be heading to the federation’s Goal Project offices after airing their grievances to the country’s Senate, carried placards with anti-Mwendwa messages citing the ‘misappropriation of funds.
Top on their list includes demands that the federation produces an Outside Broadcasting (OB) van which has put the country’s FA in a questionable situation for their failure to properly account for the Kshs135million used to buy the non-existent property.
They’re also demanding full accountability of the Ksh244million given to the federation by the government for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) competition-which has since put Nick Mwendwa and Permanent Secretary for Sports Ministry Kirimi Kaberia at loggerheads.
“We, the Philip Otieno Mbandi and Stephen Kiama Maiko being the football stakeholders and football administrators of good standing and vastly experienced on matters football and being citizens of the Republic of Kenya domiciled in Nairobi and Kisii counties respectively and exercising our rights under Article 119 (1) of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, draw the attention of the Senate to the following..,” their letter addressed to the Senate starts.
This development comes a few hours to the AFCON 2021 qualification match pitting Harambee Stars against Togo at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani whose kick-off is scheduled for 7 pm.
