On Tuesday 16 February, Sam Nyamweya made his last walk out of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) office as the chairman after handing over the reins to Nick Mwendwa, the newly elected FKF president.
In his parting shot, Nyamweya stated his strong conviction that Mwendwa, who until his election was the FKF Premier League chairman, will do a splendid job at the federation.
Nyamweya pulled out of the race for a second term on the last minute even though all odds were against him winning and as he stepped out, he congratulated Mwendwa and called on him to continue with the good job at the federation.
“Being in that office is a real challenge; the task is enormous and there is a lot of pressure from all sides. However, I am convinced that the young man elected will do well. I have known him for long and I trust him to do a good job at the federation.
“I have done my bit; what I was able to do, I did, and what I was not able to do, he will take over and continue. I am proud of my contribution and I am very happy to oversee a smooth transition,” he said.
