While responding to the CS, FKF president Nick Mwendwa rubbished the committee appointed and vowed to fight any attempts to eject his five-year old administration from office.

Mwendwa insisted he still remains the bona fide president of the local football governing body.

“We, the ousted FKF officials, shall remain in charge, and football will continue in this country under our leadership,” he said.

He added that FKF was only answerable to its regulator, Fifa, and the Ministry of Sports had no authority whatsoever over its affairs.

World football governing body Fifa on Thursday threatened to ban Kenya from participating in its activities if the decision to disband Football Kenya Federation is not reversed.

Chief Member Associations Officer Kenny Jean-Marie said CS Amina Mohamed’s decision was against Fifa rules.
