Mwendwa Is Far Much Better Than Nyamweya, Says Former Nzoia FC Chairman

The difference between Nick Mwendwa and Sam Nyamweya is like day and night, former Nzoia FC chairman Yeppets Mokua has said.

Speaking on Tuesday to journalists, Mokua said that the leadership and achievements of the two could not be compared given that Mwendwa had achieved a milestone in his four years stay at the helm of Football Kenya Federation weighed against what Nyamweya had brought to the table during his tenure as KFF chairman.

He lauded the changes brought to the local football scene by the current regime under Mwendwa, observing that his administration had made unprecedented strides in raising the standards of the game at the grassroot through an effective and efficient system of youth structure.

“We have seen age-group games and creation of age-group teams such as Kenya U23 and Kenya U16 that has helped nurture young talent,” said Mokua.

Mokua went further and applauded the federation for encouraging Kenyan Premier League (KPL) teams to establish academy sides despite the tough economic times.

“We have also seen creation of junior teams in clubs despite the current hard financial times in the country, this only goes to show the current regime’s intentions to elevate Kenyan football in the country,” said Mokua

On assuming leadership at Goal Project, Mwendwa’s administration actualized the national Center of Excellence which brought together 30 young players under the age of 15, on a homeschooling program at Thome in Nairobi.

The boys made their debut in the 2019 Mediterranean International Cup in Spain, where they bowed out in the quarterfinal of the Consolation Stage.

They also made a good impression of themselves at the 2019 CECAFA U-15 Tournament in Eritrea where they emerged second after losing to Uganda in the finals.
