Following the exit of Robert Muthomi, Football Kenya Federation (FKF) chairman Nick Mwendwa has named journalist Barry Otieno in the acting capacity of the federations Chief Executive Officer.
Muthomi stepped aside on Sunday to pave way for investigations into transfer saga involving Sofapaka player John Avire and Muthomi.
Muthomi held the CEO’s office as well as that of the federation’s General Secretary but he had to step aside to allow investigations after being implicated in the Avire transfer saga.
In light of the development, the federation president, Mwendwa confirmed that the Emergency Committee met on Sunday and agreed to have Otieno, who is also the federation’s Head of Communications, take up the role.
“The committee sat yesterday and agreed to have Barry Otieno take up the role in acting capacity as the concerned bodies go on with the investigations,” he pointed out.
The president predicted about 30 to 45 days for the investigations and delivery of the verdict in the case.
