Kenya given nod to host Cecafa Challenge Cup

FKF Deputy Chairman:Robert Asembo
By Fred Maingi
The CECAFA on going congress in Mahe Seychelles has accepted Kenya's
petition regarding the hosting of this years East and Central Africa
Senior Challenge Cup .
The Kenyan delegation to the congress led by FKF Chairman Sam Nyamweya
and Vice Chair Robert Asembo as well as secretary general Lordvick
Aduda requested to know why Uganda were awarded the hosting rights
despite Kenya being given the nod in the last years Congress held in
Dar es salam.
The member countries agreed in solidality  that Kenya should host the
event since there was no official communication or counsultations
canceling   the hosting rights.
The member countries blamed the CECAFA chairman Tanzanian Leodgar
Tenga and his Secretary general Nicholas Musonye for causing confusion
on the actual venue this year.
The chairman in his defence had told the congress that  the sponsor
had requested that the event should be held in Uganda ,but the Kenyan
delegation rejected his defence.
The tournament sponsors EABL had sent a letter to FKF last week
clarifying that they never dictate the venue of the tournament.
The members noted stripping Kenya of its hosting obligations without
informing all the other members was a violation of decisions of the
congress which is the supreme organ of CECAFA.
Kenya has now won its bid to host this years event and the Congress
resolved that the CECAFA executive committe accept the FKF petition.

The Executive committee will sit and issue a resolution within two days .
