In Summary
  • After the “Mombasa” Football Kenya Federation Annual General Meeting, we do suppose that we will settle down to seeing the smooth running of the Cecafa Senior challenge Cup.
  • We lost the hosting rights for the African Nations Championships because we had shoddy stadiums that just could be accepted by Caf to host matches.
  • But as we were lamenting this fact, we were given a chance by Cecafa to host the Challenge Cup.

After the “Mombasa” Football Kenya Federation Annual General Meeting, we do suppose that we will settle down to seeing the smooth running of the Cecafa Senior challenge Cup.

We lost the hosting rights for the African Nations Championships because we had shoddy stadiums that just could be accepted by Caf to host matches.

But as we were lamenting this fact, we were given a chance by Cecafa to host the Challenge Cup.

We are very good at talking and convincing people verbally but when it comes to action, we always seem to fall short. It is an annoying Kenyan trait that we just are unable to do away with.

Now, with the invitation of other countries to the tourney, some of us just have to hold our breaths in fear that the same hiccups may shame the country.

TEAMS DETAINED HOSTEL

The last time we hosted this Cup, there were teams that were detained in hotel rooms because our officials forgot to pay bills.

There were diplomats running around unhappily trying to free their nationals from that shame. We still do not know if FKF ever felt some heat of embarrassment on their faces; or perhaps they lost that human feeling a long time ago. Some people may have laughed in private at the discomfort they caused to foreigners.
