County Football Associations welcome High Court ruling on status of FKF
May 10th 2022
On Tuesday, however, High Court Judge Hedgwig Ong’undi dismissed the petition, ruling also that, “the Cabinet Secretary acted within her mandate under the Sports Act to appoint the FKF Caretaker Committee.”
The ruling added: “The Petitioners were accorded an opportunity to be heard and the Inspection Report was carried out in accordance with the law.”
Judge Ong’udi concluded: “The Petition lacks merit and is hereby dismissed.”
The High Court also directed the Sports Registrar to serve the Petitioners with the Inspection Report within 14 days.
Reacting to the FKF Caretaker Committee’s report, which was handed today to the Sports CS Amb. Amina Mohamed, Njoroge said the CFAs are members of FKF legally reconginsed by the Sports Act 2013.
“While we commend the FKF Caretaker Committee for their report, it is erroneous for them to state that we are not members of the FKF. We are members who chose to abide by the Constitution of Kenya and the Sports Act. The FKF Caretaker Committee appears to suggest that we made a mistake to comply with the laws of Kenya. We hope that position will be revised,” Njoroge said.
