Meeting between Fifa and Kenyan government set to be postponed

Meeting between Fifa and Kenyan government set to be postponed

The highly anticipated meeting between Football Kenya Federation and Fifa representatives and the government scheduled for April 6 might be pushed forward.

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. 

FKF President Nick Mwendwa has stated the Fifa officials have not yet arrived.

“Fifa officials will definitely not be coming over (to Nairobi),” Mwendwa told Nation Sport.

“I would have known that by now with three days to go. I am also not sure of the video conference meeting because even Fifa officials are working from home right now and nothing has been planned as yet.”

Mwendwa has also insisted that the relationship between the federation and the government has always been strong.

“We have worked well with the government since we came to office and most of our successes on the pitch were supported by the Ministry of Sports and President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“Our case is different from Fifa because we are subordinates and theirs is a directive. But we are hopeful of arriving at a solution after the talks.”

The elections were set to be done on March 27 this year.
