FKF boss Mwendwa says football body risks being auctioned
Football Kenya Federation (FKF) is facing the risk of having its assets auctioned over rising debts, its president Nick Mwendwa has confessed.
Speaking while appearing as a guest on SuperSport’s weekly football show Simba Super Soccer on Thursday evening, Mwendwa further highlighted the financial challenges facing the game in Kenya.
“We have 18 demand letters (from our creditors). Only yesterday (Wednesday), I received two demand letters threatening auction. We also have two coaches suing us, one at FIFA, the other at the local tribunal. It’s a mess I tell you,” Mwendwa said.
However, Mwendwa did not reveal how he plans to manage the debts estimated to be about Sh180 million, most of which were accrued during the tenure of former FKF boss Sam Nyamweya.
At the same time, Mwendwa reiterated his full support for Harambee Stars head coach Stanley Okumbi while also revealing that he has been approached by the regional football body, Cecafa, with a view to staging the annual Kagame Cup Championship in Kenya later this month.
