Nyamweya warns FKF not to drag his name through mud in Amrouche pay mess

Former FKF president Sam Nyamweya has asked the current regime to stop dragging his name into the Adel Amrouche issue.

The federation was ordered by Fifa to pay the Algerian KSh109 million for wrongful dismissal and further KSh4 million for failing to oblige on time. 

CEO Barry Otieno stated the federation is paying for the mistake done by the former office and Nyamweya has not taken the matter lightly.

“Dragging my name into their arrogant failure to honour a substantive contract in the manner Mr Otieno is purporting to do is laughable yet unfortunate, principally because it exposes the incompetence that has been resident at Kandanda House for the past four years,” Nyamweya said in a statement obtained by SPORTS AFRICA.

“It is unfortunate that Mr Otieno has resorted to unmerited propaganda after the administration he has served failed to play its part. In my handing brief to my successor Nick Mwendwa, I did include the situation about Adel Amrouche and Bobby Williamson as national men’s team coaches.

“I did clarify the situation of both of them and explained in a letter which was sent to the Ministry of Sports dated 5th February 2016 on the same and asked Mr Mwendwa to follow up with the government which was then paying the national team coach.”

The administrator says the current office should be held accountable and the government should also come in and investigate the matter fully.

“They must be forced to take individual responsibility given that the writing was on the wall FKF needed to take change tack in dealing with the issue and even engage in dialogue, they maintained their arrogant demeanour that has imposed a further KSh4 million.

“I invite the government to investigate the conduct of the individuals who served with Mr Mwendwa to bring to book the culprits that have visited untold plunder of resources at the federation because this conduct is a manifestation of how things are not right at Kandanda House in the context of prudent financial management.”
