Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has come down hard on presidential candidate Nick Mwendwa following the latest controversy involving the Kariobangi Sharks founder and the local football governing body.
FKF alleges that Mwendwa on Thursday (Oct. 22) convened a meeting that resolved to suspend the FKF Premier League until after the federation’s elections set to start next week.
However in a rejoinder, the Federation dismissed the move saying Mwendwa, who has declared interest in challenging Sam Nyamweya for the presidential position, was ‘misusing his position to undermine the federation.’
“The Acting chairman of the FKF PL, Mr. Nick Mwendwa, who has declared interest in the position of president of FKF in the forthcoming elections must desist from misusing his position in the FKF PL to undermine the federation for political expediency,” said the statement.
“Disrupting football activities as a way of gaining political points contravenes the FIFA Statutes and the Code of Ethics and persons guilty of contravening the provisions of the Statutes and CoE are liable for serious disciplinary actions, which FKF will not hesitate to mete out to protect the integrity of the game.”
Mwendwa, rumoured in some quarters as Nyamweya’s project, is also the one giving the incumbent sleepless nights ahead of the National elections set for November 13.
