Wario facing the sack after Chan fiasco – Jubilee MP

By NAHASHON MUSUNGU September 25th, 2017 1 min read

A Jubilee MP has said Sports Secretary Hassan Wario should be blamed for Kenya’s failure to host the 2018 Africa Nations Championship (Chan) football tournament.

Cherang’any MP Joshua Kutuny claimed on Monday that Mr Wario could not make it back to cabinet for embarrassment after Kenya was stripped the rights to host the event.

“This is a very embarrassing situation for the country. I am blaming the Sports Ministry and all the departments because this is unprofessional,” Mr Kutuny while commentating in a talk show on Citizen TV.

“In fact, and I am now talking as the former advisor to the President, I don’t expect the person currently in charge of Sports to make it to the next cabinet named by President Uhuru Kenyatta.”

Mr Wario and Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwendwa are facing increasing calls to resign on moral grounds.

Besides losing the rights, Harambee Stars have been disqualified from competing in the three week tournament which takes place in January.
