Nairobi Kenya: Sports, Arts and Culture Cabinet Secretary Hassan Wario says he is willing to risk a Fifa ban if it will help transform football management in the country.
He also called for better management and good governance of Kenyan football from the federation incharge for the betterment of the sport.
This comes days after ex-NEC members comprising of Hussein Terry, Tom Alila and Sammy Sholei accused FKF chairman Sam Nyamweya of embezzlement.
“I would like to tell them, don’t go to the press, let’s sit and talk about the matter.”
“Football should get their act together. Other sports federations have done that in what they do but football is yet toreplicate that.”
”I would like to say well done to Victor Wanyama on his move. I talked to FKF on Wednesday morning and they know our stand.”
”I'm ready to take any risk that will eventually improve Kenyan football, and take it back to glory days. If we have the best player in East Africa that comes from Kenya then why not be the best in region by winning titles.”
“For the first time, the federation has been given money by the government. We want to give cash to the sport that bring wins to the country as for the one that bring wrangles take money away.
When asked if this will be unfair to deprive of the sport when it doesn’t win he said: “It’s not unfair since we can support through other means in the regional level that will grow and develop football.”
Fifa is yet to respond to letter written to them in regards to embezzlement of funds from the World governing body and Caf.
