I will extend KPL contract if elected – Musonye

Football Kenya Federation presidential aspirant Nicholas Musonye has said he will extend the contract of the Kenyan Premier League to run  the top tier beyond this season.

The current regime under Nick Mwendwa has on several occasions insisted it will not extend KPL’s contract which ends on September 24. 

Musonye, who was the secretary general of the Council for East and Central Africa Football Associations (Cecafa), has insisted he will not be keen on running the top tier.

“I have no problem with KPL running top flight football,” the veteran administrator told NTV.

“Actually, I will extend their contract and add them the National Super League (NSL) as well. They will be dealing with promotions and relegation and it will be easy for them if they manage both leagues.”

The vocal aspirant has revealed his main agenda for kenyan football.

“I want to restore hope in Kenya fans. I want to restore what has been lost and that is by setting structures and ensure all teams perform. It will start from youth structures, women teams all the way to the senior team.

“We want to have sponsors on board who can help our football grow, not having wrangles year in year out.”

Sam Nyamweya is another aspirant who has also confirmed he will extend the KPL contract.

Others who have shown interest in running for the FKF top seat are Moses Akaranga and Gor Mahia CEO Omondi Aduda.
