According to Mwendwa, the teams have not received any financial support from the Ministry of Sports.

“FKF has diligently communicated to the Sports Ministry and the Sports Fund to come in and fund the national teams. We have, however, not received any response from the Ministry, which is frustrating.

“We are calling out on the Ministry to come out with reasons why we cannot get funding from the Sports Fund despite having made numerous requests for the same,” said Mwendwa on Tuesday.
