In yet another cryptic message, expelled Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwendwa has hinted at returning to football leadership.

In a tweet hurriedly scribbled on Tuesday moments after President William Ruto was sworn in, Mwendwa asked the local football fraternity to prepare for action beginning next month.

“FIFA, CAF, Harambee Stars, Harambee Starlets, The Premier League, all leagues, and grassroots teams, coaches, referees and all officials. Start training hard from tomorrow. Football competitions will resume in a month,” he said.

This is the second such message the firebrand football administrator has penned in recent days.

Mwendwa made another contentious announcement early Friday, where he claimed to have seized the leadership of FKF once again.

The embattled FKF president wrote to Fifa president Gianni Infantino on Thursday, saying he was gearing up to resume office after being expelled in November last year by Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed.

The FKF Transition Committee, which was appointed by Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed last November after Mwendwa was expelled, had set the Kenyan Premier League season to begin on September 24.
