FKF Boss:Nyamweya

By Fred Maingi
Football Kenya Federation(FKF) requires more than Kshs10 million to adequately host Tuesday’s  high profile friendly match against South Africa’s Bafana Bafana.
   FKF Chairman Sam Nyamweya said hosting the friendly match  will be a gigantic affair that will involve a stake in all area’s  in terms  of organizations and money involved.
  The  match will involve air ticket for the match officials, and accommodation and in-house transport for both the  referees and the South Africa team..
 “ As a result, added Nyamweya,we need more sponsor’s  to come on board  and support the team.The only  sponsor we have is East Africa Breweries Limited(EABL) who have injected  Shs.110m that is spread in  three years”
 He urged more sponsors to step in, adding that the budget of hosting the 1996 African Champions (South Africa)for the friendly match on Tuesday  October 16  run into tens of millions.
  “Organising such events is normally very expensive. This upcoming friendly match alone will cost the federation more than ten million shillings, so it is our appeal that more sponsors come on board to help us build a strong national team,” he said .
   Nyamweya who was addressing a packed Press Conference at the Hotel Boulevard was flanked by acting Vice Chairman Robert Asembo, and Nec  Coast province representative Hussein Terry and FKF  Secretary General Omondi Aduda among other officials.
