FootBall Kenya Limited appoints Seven Members to run national football

Harambee Stars Management Board will not be de-gazetted, Youth and Sports Minister Paul Otuoma has said.

Instead, its seven members will complement the Football Kenya Association (FKA) officials in the running of the national football team.

Contrary to earlier reports in a section of the media, the board has not been disbanded and will be involved in the team’s future assignment until the government makes the decision.

Speaking on Monday while receiving new national football administration, Otuoma was categorical that the board is still operational.

"There is no need to rush things," said Otuoma. "The new team needs to settle down and ensure a smooth transition, and then when we (government) feel it’s time, we will de-gazette the board.

"We can even do it now but, for the sake of a smooth transition, we ask the association to accommodate the board and work towards the betterment of the sport."

Mandated to run football

Evans Kidero, the Mumias Sugar Company Chief Executive Officer, chairs the board which has Multi-Choice Kenya General Manager Stephen Isaboke and KPL’s CEO Jack Oguda among its members.

The other members of the board are Vimal Shah of Kenya Association of Manufacturers, Kenya’s Vision 2030 boss Mugo Kibati and former national rugby chairman Richard Omwela.
Sports Commissioner Gordon Oluoch represents the government in the board.

"We are the ones mandated to run football in the country at the moment," said FKA chairman Sam Nyamweya. "The board and KPL are both under the association; but we will consult and see how best we can improve our football."

According to Nyamweya, FKA intends to make sub-branches operative within 100 days as well as streamline the grassroots leagues in the country to run in conformity with Fifa rules.

At the same time, international Jamal Mohammed arrived in the country on Monday even as Harambee Stars training sessions intensify ahead of their 2014 World Cup qualifier against hosts Seychelles on Friday.

Jerry Santos, formerly of Tanzania’s Simba, and James Situma (FK Tirana, Albania) were the foreign-based players who had reported to camp by Monday.

Arnold Origi, Victor Wanyama and his brother McDonald Mariga, as well as captain Dennis Oliech are expected to arrive on Tuesday as the team prepares to leave for the Indian Ocean island on Thursday.

"The team is scheduled to depart on Thursday, a day to our match on Friday. We are in high spirits and hope to complete a double against Seychelles," said Stars team manager Edward Oduor.
