In this four years, current FKF President Nick Mwendwa has elevated the standards of football in the country through his good governance and I believe if given another term will place Kenyan football on the world map.”
Nick Mwendwa has turned around the fortunes of Football Kenya Federation despite inheriting it when it had colossal debts and a whole range of problems, says a football administrator.
FKF Upper Eastern Branch Secretary Ken Rungu gave the current FKF President Nick Mwendwa and his team a thumbs up for making efforts to raise the standards of football in the country.
“In this four years, current FKF President Nick Mwendwa has elevated the standards of football in the country through his good governance and I believe if given another term will place Kenyan football on the world map,” said Rungu.
The Return Of Starlets
Harambee Starlets had become defunct after being sidelined by the preceding federation, but in 2016 the current office repackaged the FKF Women Premier League as well as the Division One Leagues, consequently pumping some life into the senior women’s national team.
The Starlets were exceptionally impressive in their 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations debut and closed the year triumphantly after being crowned the 2019 CECAFA Senior Women champions in Tanzania for the first time ever.
Junior National Team
Mwendwa’s office then implemented a once inconceivable idea of raising a junior national team by founding the National Center of Excellence where young players are being nurtured to create a pool for National Senior team, Harambee Stars.
