Former Football Kenya Federation President Sam Nyamweya has been slapped with a ten year ban from all football activities by the Federation’s National Executive Committee NEC.

The decision was arrived at after a NEC meeting held on 21st of March. Already a letter confirming the same sent to him.

In the letter, FKF says Nyamweya has violated Article 13(1) of the federation’s constitution by filing a petition in court that sought to stop them from carrying out their mandate. He was also accused of illegally withdrawing Ksh2.5 million from the Federation account that was destined for FKF Abadares branch.

Nyamweya in February had filed a case seeking orders to suspend the club licensing process introduced by the federation. He argued that there were a lot of shortcomings in the process arguing that the country risked losing including other benefits, the rights of the 2018 Continental African Nations Championship (CHAN).

 

He also sort to restrain current President Nick Mwendwa from discussing and interfering with the ownership, organization and running of the Kenyan Premier League limited (KPL).

Kenya's Harambee Stars failed to win for the first time in five matches after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Uganda Cranes in an international friendly match played at the Machakos County stadium on Thursday 23rd March 23, 2017. 

Guizhou Zhicheng striker Michael Olunga put Kenya in the lead 35th minute when he cut inside the Cranes defence to fire  in the right bottom corner past Bernard Ochan to give Stanley Okumbi’s charges the lead. 

Olunga’s goal was a well planned and executed one-nine initiated by keeper Patrick Matasi who was making his first full international debut for Stars. 

The goal would stand until the 85th minute when debutant Moses Waiswa whizzed past Brian Mandela and Aboud Omar to smash past Matasi to silence the Machakos crowd that was dancing with joy expecting a win. 

Kenya who rested most of their stars including captain Victor Wanyama had chances to put the game to bed with most of them going goalscorer Olunga's way but he wasn't sharp.

The Stanley Okumbi-led side now shift focus turns to Sunday’s friendly match against the Democratic Republic of Congo at the same venue. 

This was the 77th meeting between the two sides since 1926.

It may be one game but confidence is already building up in Ghanaian striker Gilbert Fiamenyo  after he scored on his debut for AFC Leopards in their opening Kenyan Premier League fixture against Nakumatt FC at the Thika County Stadium.

The 5’ 11’ striker was signed by Ingwe on a free transfer from Ghanaian Premier League side Hearts of Oak but was ineligible to feature for the 12-time Kenyan champions because he came in after the June transfer window had elapsed. That meant that he could not play active football for another five months thanks to the wrangles between the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) and the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) over how many teams would feature in the top tier.

‘Before signing for Ingwe, I had stayed in the cold for another 6 months and this really affected me,’ he told Fourfourtwomediia.com.

‘I really wanted to play football, I was hungry for it,’ he said.

The shy Fiamenyo, reflecting on the chronology of events says that staying in the cold helped mature both as a player and person, he is now focusing more on the task ahead, helping his new club win trophies and the ultimate prize, the KPL title.

‘I know expectations are very high from the fans and my duty is to ensure that I try and accomplish almost all things that I promised them when I signed here.’

‘Slow starts are always not very good for a player especially a striker,’ he quips. 

‘You have to fight hard for the team. Signing for the biggest club in Kenya means that I was ready to fight and work has just started, together with the rest of the team, we will try give fans something to smile about.’

With fans, as their tradition demanding less than goals from strikers, the former Ghana U20 player says it is only confidence that can help him arrest the situation

‘Confidence is so important for a striker,’ Fiamenyo is explains.

‘It's important to keep the faith and to always keep going, even if the goals don’t come your way, try make someone else score.’

"You have to always work hard because sometimes when you are a striker you can score every opportunity. You just need to keep concentrating on the game and never give up. I'm confident that this season will be a good one."

Money is an issue he never shies to talk about and he simply put it. ‘I came here because they gave me a very lucrative deal.’

Does that mean that the local league is better than the Ghanaian one, he admits yes.

The Democratic Republic of Congo national team have complained about the 'bad state' of the Kenya School of Monetary Studies (KSMS) pitch which they are using in preparation for Sunday's friendly match against hosts Kenya.

The Leopards, ranked 38th in the world with Kenya 88th, on Tuesday (21) held their first training session at the facility which was recommended to them by host body Football Kenya Federation (FKF) and were barely impressed.

One of the team's attackers Jose Paul Mpoku said the pitch's state was bad and could easily cause injuries to players, sentiments which were shared by a number of his teammates.

"The pitch is bumpy and dry which puts us at risk of sustaining injuries yet we have big matches coming up," he told Fourfourtwomedia.com

The match against Kenya will be Congo's first since losing to Ghana in the quarterfinals of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations and head coach Florent Ibenge came with a strong contingent, perhaps keen to exact revenge on a 0-1 defeat the Harambee Stars handed them in a friendly last October.

Both teams will use the match in preparation for their 2019 Africa Nations Cup qualifiers set for June. Kenya have not played a match since beating Liberia 1-0 in a friendly last November and will be playing the two-time Afcon champions just three days after hosting Uganda in another friendly match, both at the Machakos Stadium.

Birthday boy, Micheal Olunga scored a brace as Harambee Stars beat DR Congo 2-1 in a friendly match played at the packed Machakos County Stadium.

It was a quite defensive approach by Stars coach Stanley Okumbi who deployed five defenders, Joackins Atudo, David Owino, Brian Mandela,  David Ochieng' and Abud Omar in the starting lineup with the visitors fielding most of the players that played in the Africa Cup of Nations held in Gabon in January.

South Africa based Brian Mandela picked Olunga who ran through the Congolese defence before unleashing a power drive past Joel Kasumbua to give Stars the lead in the third minute of the game.  

In the 27th minute of the game, David Ochieng ‘Cheche’ almost doubled the lead from a Jesse Were freekick but the New York Cosmos man headed directly at Kiasumbua,a minute later the Leopards made their first real attack of the game when Neekens Kebano got clear but a last ditch effort by captain Victor Wanyama cleared the danger.

Ulinzi Stars' Samuel Onyango earning his second cap for Stars also had his effort tipped over by Kiasumbua for a fruitless corner.

The second half began with the visitors pressing high, forcing corner after corner. In the 55th minute of the game, Bonface Oluoch pushed away a Junior Kabananga in swinger but Florence Imbenge’s side could not be denied minutes later when former Chelsea man Gael Kakuta curled in a free kick to restore parity.

Kenya slowly grew back into the game and the second goal was sheer hard work from Zesco United’s David Owino who dispossessed Kabananga, ran through the half way line before realeasing Samuel Onyango who squared to Olunga for an easy tap in. 

Starting XI: 1 Boniface Oluoch, 2 Joackins Atudo, 19 Aboud Omar, 15 David Owino, 5 Brian Mandela, 12 Victor Wanyama, 4 David Ochieng, 8 Johanna Omollo, 9 Samuel Onyango, 20 Jesse Were, 14 Michael Olunga.

 Subs: 18 David Okello, 13 Robinson Kamura, 6 Monday Osborne, 17 David Mwangi, 7 Kenneth Muguna, 10 Mark Makwatta, 11 Noah Wafula, 16 Paul Were

Former FKF President Sam Nyamweya has won round  one  of a  Kenya  Premier league dispute after the High court dismissed  a preliminary objection  by Nick Mwendwa and Robert Muthomi  to have a case filed  by Nyamweya thrown out without full hearing.

Judge John Mativo ruled that the objection by Mwendwa seeking to have the petition struck out lacked merit adding that it was not based on a  pure point of law to warrant its  dismissal. 

Nyamweya had moved to court seeking orders  to suspend club licensing rules and  blocking FKF and their officials from discussing or interfering with ownership and management of Kenya Premier League.

In the suit he had sued the Sports Dispute Tribunal, FKF president, Nick Mwendwa, CEO Robert Muthomi and KPL.

He says the two have made unilateral decisions to the detriment of football in the country.

FKF President Mwendwa and CEO Robert Muthomi on behalf of FKF and KPL  had raised an  objection towards  hearing the matter on the basis that Nyamweya's case does not disclose violation of constitutional rights.

The judge added that the agreement in dispute was entered between two legal persons and that when  dispute arose, the same was heard by the sports tribunal and a determination made.

FKF, he said, also ignored lawful orders given by Sports Dispute Tribunal on October 14, 2016 and went ahead to approve club licensing regulations ,which bordered on expansion of the league.

He now wants the courts to intervene and prevent any deadlocks, which might lead to sanctioning of Kenya.

Nyamweya is apprehensive that the country might miss out on hosting the 2018 African Nations Championship to the detriment of millions of fans if sanity is not restored.

FKF is a member association of Fifa and is in charge of organising the second tier football league (national super league) as well as other leagues below national league.
