Bandari FC have appointed William Ruto as the chairman of the struggling Kenyan Premier League side Bandari FC.

The new chairman serves as the general operations manager in the Kenya Ports Authority, and he replaces Musa Hassan who has been fired owing to poor performance of the Dockers.

“Following the performance of the KPA-sponsored Bandari Football Club, and the same has been wanting in the recent past, it’s the desire of the KPA family that the gains in performance posted by the club in the earlier part of the season are sustained for the future,” read Ruto’s appointment letter.

“This can only be achieved in an environment where the club activities are well managed and the players get motivated to maintain a high-performance level. In this respect, I’m convinced that it is time that I introduce changes in the management of the club.

“In this regard, therefore, I appoint William Kipkemboi Ruto as chairman with immediate effect,” concluded the letter signed by KPA Managing Director Catherine Mturi.

The Dockers are currently 11th on the Kenyan Premier League table.
