FIFA recognizes football Kenya federation current team as legitimately in office until the matter is settled after the court ruling. The letter send by FIFA chief member Associations officer Veron-Mosengo Omba to the FKF CEO Mr. Barry Otieno affirmed that Mwendwa remains in charge until pending the meeting between them, ministry of sports, FKF and sports Disputes Tribunal.
On the other hand the world football governing body blamed the federation for subjecting themselves to the jurisdiction of the sports Disputes Tribunal. The SDT nullified the January elections and disbanded NEC. According to Mosengo it was wrong for FKF to take such route given the SDT is not the national arbitration tribunal.
The FIFA chief member saddened by that move by the FKF, however he insisted on getting the amicable solution for the sake of peace. The meeting is scheduled to be on 6th April but with the worldwide spread of corona pandemic, the world football federation is exploring other ways like video conferencing.
Communication from FIFA has boosted the blue team chances of regaining the powers to run football in Kenya. But on the other hand if the government sticks to the SDT direction then the country might head to severe punishment from FIFA.
The referees association has made their pronouncement by backing FIFA on the same. They claim that the achievement made in the last four years cannot be taken for granted. “Football management has tremendously improved and we were heading in the direction all football lovers wish to be”, an official said.
It’s surprising though to note that the Cs sports Amina Mohhamed claiming that she haven’t gotten any information from the world football governing body. This might be a scheme to curtail the process.
