Nyamweya sends Naggi packing over missing CAF balls
Football Kenya Federation (FKF) have suspended their technical director/education officer Patrick Naggi indefinitely for the alleged theft of 100 match balls. In a statement, FKF chairman Sam Nyamweya said the balls, sent by CAF in February 2012 for use of our national teams cannot be accounted for. “The balls never reached the secretariat and this is a serious issue and the federation has launched investigations with the police to unearth this theft,” said Nyamweya. “This is part of the federations move to guard against misappropriation of equipment and other assets that are meant for the development of the game.”
It is also part of the ongoing reforms within the federation of streamlining their operations and upholding the policy of zero tolerance to any form of malpractice by anyone associated with the federation. Naggi’s suspension comes after that of vice chairman Sammy Sholei and Nairobi branch chairman Dan Shikanda for taking the federation to court hence faulting the new constitution adoption process.
Meanwhile, Bomet-based Silibwet FC started their second leg of the Provincial League Zone ‘A’ on a high note after whitewashing arch-rivals Matrix 6-2 in a hotly contested match played at Silibwet sports ground. Silibwet rallied from behind to steal the show from the visitors in the second half of the match. Matrix FC took the lead in the 20th minute through Bernard Ngerechi before firing a superb shot a few yards from the box to silence incessant cheering from local fans. Ngerechi scored the second goal six minutes later after heading home cross from Ken Korir .
