Fifa meeting with FKF and Kenyan government officials postponed

Fifa meeting with FKF and Kenyan government officials postponed

The highly anticipated meeting involving Fifa, FKF and government representatives has been pushed forward to May.

The meeting was initially set for April 6 but the current coronavirus pandemic could not make it possible.

Due to this, the world football governing body has been forced to  postpone the meeting to a further date hoping the situation will be better by then.

“We refer to our previous letter dated 25 March 2020 by means of which we alluded to a meeting to be held as soon as possible with FKF, the SDT representative(s), the Minister of Sport and other relevant stakeholders, in order to find a way forward following the Sports Dispute Tribunal (SDT) decision rendered on 17 March 2020,” read a statement from Fifa, signed by Chief Member Association Officer Veron Mosengo-Omba.

“Considering the current worldwide sanitary situation and our institutional travel restrictions, we kindly inform you the holding of such a meeting in Nairobi shall be postponed to May 2020, once we can resume travelling and upon receipt of further information from your side on the health situation in Kenya.”

The meeting was set to find the middle ground after the Sports Disputes Tribunal ruled the current regime does not qualify to hold the national elections after the term of the current national executive council has expired.

Initially, the meeting had been scheduled for March 27, 2020.
