He said four years since he exited the presidency, football standards have nose-dived. “The Football Kenya Federation of today is not in the state that I left it when I handed over to Mwendwa three years ago. Over that period, I have taken a low profile though keenly observing and following events. What I have seen is unacceptable if Kenya is to grow as a football powerhouse,” Nyamweya said. “During my tenure of office, we secured funding from Fifa to lay a modern artificial turf in Kisumu and the City Stadium. We conducted the elite Caf A Coaching License courses where 36 of our Local Coaches were awarded the prestigious Caf A Licences. The top tier league was well sponsored and the clubs were enjoying income from the partnerships.” He added: “We built the brand National Super League as a stable and very competitive League, and being able to honour its financial obligations to the referees who received their pay for their services on time,” Nyamweya said.
