  5. FKF Division 1 League                 

This suspension comes in a few hours after Football governing body FIFA  responds to the move by the government to disband FKF and appoint Football Caretaker Committee contrary to its provisions.

The body had initially they are threatening to impose a ban on Kenya but first offered to mediate.

“We consider the aforementioned decision by the Cabinet Secretary to appoint an FKF Caretaker Committee in lieu of the elected FKF Executive Committee is undoubtedly contrary to the above principles.” Reads their statement.

Sports Cabinet Secretary Amb. Amina Mohamed on Thursday morning disbanded the entire FKF team and appointed a 15-member committee led by the Retired Judge and Former EACC director Aaron Ringera.

The 15 member committee includes General (Rtd) Moses Oyugi, Fatma Adan, Philip Musyimi, Anthony Isayi, Elisha Kiplagat and Hassan Haji.

Others are Fredrick Tureisa, Mwangi Muthee, Neddy Atieno, Ali Amour, Titus Kasuve, Richard Omwela, Bobby Ogolla and JJ Masiga.

The committee has a six-month mandate to ”clean up the mess” at the FKF.  The move now leaves Nick Mwendwa in a tight balance.
