- Top-flight Kenya Premier League clubs have announced that they will not take part in any competition not recognised by FIFA
- The FKF Transition Committee installed by the government last year has been running football in the country and have announced October 1st as the commencement date for the new league
- This, as Amina Mohamed maintains, Nick Mwendwa is still not mandated to run the country’s football
Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed has fired back at Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa for breaking into FKF offices.
Mwendwa led a team of senior federation officials to FKF’s offices at Kandanda House on Tuesday, 20th September.

The embattled FKF boss had announced he was back in office after writing to FIFA informing them of the same.
Amina has rebutted claims that the country’s football leadership has been reverted back to Mwendwa. The CS termed Mwendwa’s action as a break-in as he remains out of office as Capital Sports reports.
It is instructive to note that this decision rendered in May has not been vacated/reversed and the FKF Transition Committee remains in office and in charge of football management in Kenya.
The May decision was a High Court ruling that upheld Amina’s move to remove Mwendwa’s team from office. Amina has reiterated that the transition committee is still in charge of football in the country.
As this happened, a section of top-flight clubs led by Gor Mahia have announced that they will not participate in any league that would be run by the Transition Committee. The statement read by Gor Mahia’s CEO Raymond Oruo on behalf of the clubs said,
We will not participate in any competition that is not sanctioned by the world governing body, FIFA, because it is a waste of time and investment.
The transition committee had announced that the new season will kick off on October 1st.
Nick Mwendwa leads FKF officials back to Kandanda House
Sports Brief had earlier reported that the Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa, on Tuesday morning, led other members of the federation back to official offices.
Mwendwa announced last week that he was back in office following the Directorate of Public Prosecutions(DPP) decision to withdraw graft charges against him.
He had stepped aside last year and delegated his duties to the vice-chairperson Doris Petra. The offices at Kandanda house had been closed down following Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed’s decision to disband the federation.
