FIFA Bans Kenya From Football Activities Over Government Interference

World football governing body, FIFA, has asked the Kenyan government to repeal the decision to disband Football Kenya Federation and install a caretaker committee or the country risks remaining in the cold indefinitely.

In a letter to the disbanded federation’s secretary-general Barry Otieno, FIFA asked the government to “repeal the Cabinet Secretary’s decision of 11 November 2021 appointing the caretaker committee in lieu of the elected FKF Executive Committee.”

The world governing body said it would only lift the suspension upon “receipt of confirmation from the FKF and its management, led by Vice-President Doris Petra and General Secretary Barry Otieno that the FKF and its premises are once more under their full and unconditional control.”

“Without prejudice to any investigations by national authorities or other judicial bodies, the Fifa Council also decided to suspend the Football Kenya Federation and the Zimbabwe Football Association with immediate effect due to undue interference by a third party,” Infantino said.

Kenya’s Sports Cabinet Secretary, Amina Mohamed, on November 11 last year disbanded the Nick Mwendwa-led Football Kenya Federation and installed a Caretaker Committee to, among other things, run football activities in accordance with the federation’s constitution.
