The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwendwa has named three top officials to aid in the management of the affairs at the federation as he settles in office following his election three weeks ago.
Robert Muthomi, who is also the Nakuru AllStars CEO will henceforth serve at the federation as the CEO and he will be replacing Michael Esakwa, who unconfirmed reports have it that he has been redeployed.
Christine Ojode who at some point during former president Sam Nyamweya’s reign served as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO), is back at the FKF in the same role while Mwendwa has invaded the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) to fish out Phoebe Amuyunzu.
Amuyunzu was serving at the KPL as the Head of Competitions and she will assume the same role at the federation.
Speaking after making the appointments, the president stated the changes are meant to instill professionalism in the operations of the federation.
“The appointments of the three professionals is a clear indication of my team’s commitment to inject professionalism into the management of football in Kenya. It reinforces our pledge to overhaul and reshape the administration of football in the country. Equally, it denotes that we will be an employer who embraces diversity and equal opportunity for all.”
He added; “Getting the right people for the job is a key enabler not only for the federation but for countrywide programs. The other key enablers are integrity, accountability, systems and clear structures, teamwork and partnerships.
