The Amina Mohammed Caretaker Committee led by Justice Aaron Ringera has indicated they are in charge of running football activities in the country. This nods in the wake of petition filed by the impeached FKF president Nick Mwendwa seeking to stop the committee’s operations.

A statement from Ringera sent to media houses on Friday 26 November 2021 reads, “The Football Kenya Federation {FKF} Caretaker Committee wishes to inform our stakeholders that we were on 24 November 2021 served with a petition filed in the High Court as Case No E473 OF 2021 Nick Mwendwa and Others versus Cabinet Secretary Ministry of Sports Culture and Heritage and Others

The matter came up for hearing before the High Court on 25 November 2021 for an Application by the Petitioners to stop the operations of the FKF Caretaker Committee. The High Court did not grant any interim orders. A ruling on this matter will be delivered by the Court on 18th December 2021

We therefore, wish to clarify that the FKF Caretaker Committee remains in charge of all football activities and is working round the clock towards the resumption of the various Leagues.”

Cabinet Secretary for Sports Amina Mohammed disbanded the Nick Mwendwa’s led Football Kenya Federation {FKF} on 11 November 2021, replacing it with Caretaker Committee to oversee all football activities in the country for the next six months led by Justice Aaron Ringera.

While folding and disbanding the federation Amina quoted, “Over the past few years, the Football Kenya Federation has faced several governance issues that have been of great concern to the Ministry’

“First the Football Kenya Federation has failed to account for all the moneys allocated to it by the Government. All beneficiaries of the Fund are as a matter of course trained on how to apply, utilize and account for the funds. The beneficiaries are also aware that they are required to fully disclose any financial assistance received from other sponsors, Football Kenya Federation has fallen short of this requirement.”
