The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) is facing hard times ahead with three suits from two former national team coaches as well as a media partner but the president, Nick Mwendwa is confident his office will handle.
Speaking at a media briefing organized earlier on Tuesday 17 May at a Nairobi hotel, Mwendwa revealed that two former Harambee Stars coaches, Adel Amrouche and Bobby Williamson, as well as MP & Silva have sued the federation over contract related breaches.
While MP & Silva, the media partners who entered a five year deal with the former federation office are suing for breach of contract, Williamson, who was in charge until February this year wants his unpaid dues settled. Amrouche on his part, wants compensation for unlawful dismissal.
“There are three cases out there against the federation; first is with Bobby Williamson who has sued over his unpaid dues during his time at Harambee Stars and there is also Adel Amrouche who is considering legal proceedings over unlawful dismissal and MP & Silva who are considering legal options over breach of contract.
“All these as well as the fact that we got a federation with a debt of US$ 1.8 million are the challenges we are facing but we hope to overcome. We are handling them and we hope to have them sorted in the near future,” he said.
