Wazito FC Team Manager Praises Nick Mwendwa’s Efforts In Raising The Standards Of Football In Kenya

Nick Mwendwa has taken Kenyan football several notches higher compared to any of the previous football administrators in the country.

These are words of former Wazito FC captain and current Team Manager, Dan Owino.

Speaking on Monday morning, Owino expressed profound satisfaction with the richness of Mwendwa’s scorecard in the four years he has been in office as Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president, and strongly recommended an extension of his term to enable him continue with the transformation agenda he has set for the country.

Among Mwendwa’s key achievements, he says, is the actualization of the National Center of Excellence, a homeschooling program that has brought together 20 young players aged 15 and below.

“Ever since the current regime came to office, we have seen great changes in Kenyan football. For example, in the previous regime, the Kenya U15 boys team was unheard of, but when the new regime came to office they actualized the team that has earned support from Kenyan fans,” said Dan Owino.

At the center, the boys are taken through a UK-based education system where they learn Mathematics, Biology, Geography, French and Spanish through one-on-one online sessions via skype.

The flexibility of the homeschooling system allows them enough time to participate in daily training sessions at the Wadi Degla Sports Club in Runda.

The fruits of the program have been palpable so far. The boys made their debut appearance in the 2019 Mediterranean International Cup in Spain, where they registered convincing results only to bow out in the quarterfinal of the Consolation Stage.

They also took part in the 2019 CECAFA U-15 Tournament in Eritrea where they lost to Uganda in the finals after riding past the preliminary stage on the back of an unbeaten record.
