•Mulee reiterated that the committee should entirely be for people who understand the intrigues of football, what Fifa means, what the harmony between FKF, Fifa and government can bring.

Immediate former Harambee Stars head coach, Jacob 'Ghost' Mulee has faulted the caretaker committee appointed by Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed last week to run football, saying it comprises individuals with little knowledge of the game.
Speaking in Westlands on Thursday, Mulee said the composition of the committee reflected negatively on the appointing authority's decision-making process.
“Questions have to be asked. How many people in that caretaker committee actually understand the intrigues of Kenyan football? posed Mulee.
“Football has been disrespected because some of the people I see in the caretaker committee don't have the slightest clue about football. Football is a profession. I've never seen a medical problem being solved by a carpenter,” he added.
Mulee reiterated that the committee should entirely be for people who understand the intrigues of football, what Fifa means, what the harmony between FKF, Fifa and government can bring."
Meanwhile, he rallied behind Fifa's call for the formation of a normalisation committee, adding it would be the only way to ensure continuity.
“The FKF should stay intact and allow things to move on. Right now the league has been stopped for two weeks. In my head, I'm thinking about who will form the next secretariat to run the competitions. Are we about to start afresh?”
“I don't think it is the right thing to do. If we get another office, they'll also encounter opposition and the cycle of misunderstanding will continue year in, year out.”
He, however, emphasised the need to uphold the rule of law in the process of groping for an amicable and lasting solution.
“But for the rule of law, FKF must be respected, the government must be respected and Fifa must be respected.”
“Some companies won't be able to pay players because they will no longer be actively involved in football. There is a lot to lose for the players, the coaches and the referees... the real football stakeholders.”
“I don't find it wise to have a problem with the president and then close the secretariat since football is run by the secretariat. There is also the administration part,” he added.
“Right now, FKF have come together with FIFA to conduct a CAF B coaching course. There are a lot of people who are going to suffer if the ban comes.”
