Kenyan referees have handed Football Kenya Federation (FKF) a thumbs up for adequately addressing their needs.
FIFA referee instructor Dorcas Moraa and elite FIFA referee Caroline Wanjala have both applauded the current federation for elevating the status of Kenyan Referees.
“I would like to thank FKF President Nick Mwendwa and the present Federation for their sincere support of the referees in the country,” said Moraa.
Elite FIFA Referee Caroline Wanjala supported her colleague’s sentiments:
“I would like to applaud the current regime for its attempts to boost the country’s performance of referees,” said Caroline Wanjala.
The current Federation moved to waive the Physical Endurance Tests (PET) Kshs 3000 fee charge that encouraged more referees to engage in the exercise.
The Federation has diligently conducted quarterly PET and referee training in a move aimed not just at keeping the match officials consistently up-to-date with the Laws of the Game but also at ascertaining their physical readiness to officiate both league and international matches.
