Football Kenya Federation (FKF)_ has urged the government to allow football to resume as part of their preparations for the 20222 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Following the suspension of all sporting events by President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday under Order Number 2 of 2021, the federation has urged the government to reconsider their stand on sports.
Speaking today during lunch for Harambee Stars following their dominance against Togo in the AFCON qualifiers on Monday, federation’s president Nick Mwendwa said the team is supposed to prepare for the world Cup.
“I have talked to Sports CS (Amina Mohammed) and she has told us to write to her so that the issue can be acted upon. Our league was going on well without fans and we are ready to continue observing coronavirus protocols. The league will return soon,” said Mwendwa.
The Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee’s coached side finished third in Group G on seven points behind leaders Egypt and Comoros, who amassed 12 and nine points respectively, to seal the two slots to the finals next January in Cameroon.
Kenya has been drawn against Uganda, Rwanda and Mali in Group E in the World Cup qualifiers that start in June.
