Kenya has potential to become African football success story, FIFA Director says
Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has received a morale boost from FIFA Director for Member Associations Africa Gelson Fernandes, who says the country has great potential to become an African football success story.
“Kenya is a football country. There is a strong passion for the game, you have kids dreaming about making a career in football, boys and girls who enjoy playing football. It will take energy and investment to get where we want to be but we will make it,” said Fernandes, who is a part of a joint FIFA/CAF delegation on a visit to Kenya.
Fernandes said that the mission was an important step for the future of Kenya.
“The Federation is back from suspension. We have come to assess the situation and to see what we can do in the coming months to help the federation develop football, to develop young players, and bring the joy of football back to Kenya,” he said.
The delegation met with Cabinet Secretary Ababu Namwamba on Monday, FKF President Nick Mwendwa and the National Executive Committee on Tuesday. They also visited the ongoing CAF B Coaching Course at the Kenya Institute of Special Education.
“Our stakeholders are the Federation, we try and protect the federations so that they can run football properly, of course, we need to work with the government, it’s a tripartite engagement. It was a good mission, now we get back to work,” said Fernandes.
Apart from Fernandes, the FIFA delegation comprises Nodar Akhalkatsi, Director of Strategic Projects & MA Governance, Solomon Mudege, Head of Development Programs, Alessandro Gramalgia Strategic Development Manager, and Sarah Solemale Senior MA Governance Manager. Naddim Magdy Legal counsel at CAF is also a part of the delegation.
The delegation wrapped up their visit on Tuesday evening, with a positive outlook on the future of football in Kenya.
Sports Cabinet Secretary Ababu Namwamba said Kenya plans to bid to host 2027 AFCON and also achieve its dream of playing in the 2030 FIFA World Cup.
