Former Kenya Premier League (KPL) champions Mathare United have pointed a finger to the Caretaker Committee for their relegation woes.
Today, Mathare’s Bob Munro wrote to the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Transition Committee secretariat, Lindah Ogutu accused the Caretaker Committee for their woes.
“After the gazetting of the FKF Transition Committee on May 13, our club received, later that day, your letter decreeing our suspension and relegation from the FKF Premier League,” the letter read in part.
“Please note the following relevant facts: In 2021, before November 11 when FKF was disbanded and replaced by the FKF Caretaker Committee (FKF CC), our club had received FKF grants averaging Ksh 960,000 per month.”
Munro said that on November 27, 2021, Mathare sent their basic income and expenditure for the 2021-22 season, laying bare their need and dependence on FKF CC monthly grants.
“On December 1, 2021, the FKF CC announced that it would “provide logistical support of Sh300,000 for each of the Premier League clubs.
“Eventually after sustained lobbying, the FKF CC paid its first monthly grant of Sh300,000 on December 22, 2021,” Munro said.
