That’s your revenge, Shollei tells Nyamweya following 10-year ban

Former Football Kenya Federation boss Sam Nyamweya is facing ridicule from his former lieutenants in the wake of a lengthy ban from football activities imposed on him by the current regime.

The veteran football administrator has been slapped with a ten-year ban, with the communication confirmed in a letter signed by FKFs chief executive Robert Muthomi.

Mr Nyamweya is accused of lodging a case against FKF in court and withdrawing Sh2.5 million without due authority.


And although he has dismissed his suspension, and instead vowed to institute legal proceedings against the current office led by president Nick Mwendwa, this development has n0t stopped the likes of former FKF vice president Sammy Shollei from poking fun at their former boss.

In a message on Facebook, Shollei posted a meme of himself next to a smiling Nyamweya with the hashtag #NASKIANITENYEARS, loosely translated to mean “I am told it is a ten year ban”.

He then captioned the message; “What you do before your kids, they will pick it up and sometimes do it unto you, it’s a matter of time.”

In 2013, Mr Nyamweya handed Mr Shollei a six-year ban from football activities following a public spat between the two.

The decision was rescinded two years later, but Mr Shollei refused to resume office and work under Mr Nyamweya citing a lack of trust and breakdown in relationship.

Mr Nyamweya also handed separate bans to Hussein Terry, then NEC member for Coast region, and Dan Shikanda, who had been elected Nairobi branch’s FKF chairman, during his reign as boss of the federation.
