The Nairobi County Football Association(NCFA) has rejected any deliberations and resolutions arrived at during a joint Fifa /CAF and FKF meeting held in Nairobi.
NCFA county representatives accused Fifa of smacking Kenyans on their face by engaging with corrupt Football Kenya Federation(FKF), officials who have pending cases in court.
Led by Chairman Charles Njoroge, the NCFA county officials further blamed Sports Cabinet Secretary Hon. Ababu Namwamba for failing to initiate a meeting with football stakeholders for a joint discussion with the fact finding Fifa delegation.
“It is now very clear that FIFA has officially endorsed corruption and mismanagement of Kenya football. We are sending a strong message to the architects of corruption in Kenyan football and their masters that we shall remain vigilant and unbowed in our pursuit for a corrupt free sporting space”Observed Njoroge.
“We are extremely disappointed with Sports C. S. Hon.Namwamba for failing to demonstrate fidelity to the constitution of Kenya 2010 and the Sports Act 2013″noted the NCFA Boss.
