BREAKING: Football Kenya Federation names new CEO

22 Jul 2019, 11:00

Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa has appointed Barry Otieno as their new Chief Executive Officer on an interim basis to replace Robert Muthomi who stepped aside on Sunday.

Until his appointment, Barry was the Football Kenya Federation communication head; a position he has held since the current regime took office.

On Sunday, Muthomi had stepped aside to allow investigations into allegations labeled on him about his purported involvement in the transfer of Sofapaka FC striker John Avire to an unnamed Egyptian side.

Bad Books

Muthomi found himself in the bad books early this week after a letter he had purportedly signed emerged in the public as he requested the Egyptian Embassy to grant Avire a VISA to visit their country as a fan this coming days after the player represented Harambee Stars in the African Cup of Nations.

Part of the letter sent to newsrooms on Sunday by Muthomi said: “In view of the on-going debate and conversations in regards to the allegations made by SofaPaka FC on my purported involvement in the transfer of player John Avire, I have this morning requested the FKF President to allow me to step aside for investigations to commence.”

Barry’s appointment takes effect immediately.
