The Kenya national team Harambee Stars will no longer be a burden for the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) to carry, this was revealed by the Sports Cabinet Secretary Dr. Hassan Wario after meeting football stakeholders and FKF election aspirants.
The national team players have been grappling with unpaid dues before and after international matches a matter that has left the government with no option but to leap to the team’s rescue and Wario stated that a management board for the team will be constituted soon.
“There have been so many issues surrounding the national football team and that is why you find there are no results. Things are done last minute despite there existing a proper calendar of events and these are some of the things we will look to change.
“We will constitute a board that will see the team run professionally and in that we will also include people from the corporate bodies because there is no way we can run the team without involvement of the corporate world,” he said.
The meeting, called to chart the way forward ahead of the FKF elections set to start on Thursday 29 October, was snubbed by the FKF President Sam Nyamweya but all the other presidential aspirants were in attendance.
