TFF President lauds Mwendwa


The newly elected Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwendwa has been congratulated by his Tanzanian counterpart Jamal Malinzi as he settles in the new job.

Malinzi has been a great contributor to football growth in the CECAFA region and has promised Mwendwa continued cooperation in the bid to develop the region’s football.

Tanzania and Kenya have in the past few years been working very closely especially in matters concerning referees’ development and the two countries are set to benefit more, going by the post on the TFF’s official website.

Mwendwa is the 14th FKF President and will be taking over from Sam Nyamweya who stepped down ahead of the Wednesday 10 February elections that saw Mwendwa beat his closest rival Ambrose Rachier.
