Newly-elected Football Kenya Federation (FKF) chairman Kelvin Mwangu has hit the ground running.

On Thursday, he was on a support mission when he donated playing kit to the national Division Two side Lwanda Villa.

The event was held in Ebusakami Girls’ Primary where Mwangu revealed that he had no time for celebration but would rather start serving the football fraternity.

“FKF delegates have trusted us and mandated us to serve the federation in the next four years and we have no time for celebrations but roll our sleeves and serve the clubs in the best way we can," he said.

“We want to fulfil the promises we pledged to the clubs during the campaigns as we believe we have what it takes to deliver. We just call upon every stakeholder to support us in achieving this goal."

“For those who competed against us, we want to extend an olive branch and call upon them to feel free and join us in giving the football fraternity ideas for the betterment of the sport,” said Mwangu.

Mwangu also stated that he was grateful for being given the opportunity as the chairman for Vihiga County and assured clubs that he was equal to the task together with the rest of his team.

He also regretted the effects of Covid-19 on football as players, referees and coaches continue to suffer and hoped that the government will lift the suspension of contact sports as soon as possible.

Lwanda Villa chairman Noah Otuoma observed that Mwangu has started on the right footing that promises a lot for the Vihiga branch clubs and the football fraternity at large.

He revealed that  the team will have a good campaign, targeting to one day getting promotion to the Kenyan Premier League.
