Mwendwa’s office ushered in a new era of transparency and accountability that has ensured staff salaries come in good time.”
Nick Mwendwa has eventually managed to build permanent headquarters for the Football Kenya Federation at the Goal Project in Kasarani within his four years in office.
FKF Aberdares branch Secretary James Kamau said that the project had previously failed to take off completely after the preceding administration misappropriated funds that were supposed to reactivate the national office headquarters.
“It is disappointing that funds meant for the goal project offices were misappropriated but we appreciate the current tenure for being compliant and reactivating the offices,” said Kamau.
The presence of the FIFA Goal Project offices in the vicinity of Moi International Sports Center, Kasarani, now mean that the federation has cut down on its recurrent expenditure after moving away from rented offices at Nyayo Stadium.
He further added that Football Kenya Federation (FKF) staff are now getting their full salaries consistently unlike in the past when they would go for months without pay, a branch secretary has said.
Kamau says that Mwendwa’s office ushered in a new era of transparency and accountability that has ensured staff salaries come in good time.
Salaries And Allowances
Besides the staff, he said, Mwendwa’s office had also handled salaries and allowances meant for the national team players well enough.
“Unlike the preceding Federation, the current tenure has shown great improvement in the handling of their finances in that the players and staff are paid their dues on time, unlike the federation of the yester years where some staff were not paid. When you do that you bring inneficiency,” said Kamau.
