Former CECAFA Secretary General Nicholas Musonye has outlined his plans as he seeks to out seat Nick Mwendwa from the Football Kenya Federation’s top seat.
Musonye is one of the aspirants who have shown interest in the seat and according to him in a show at NTV, he had a lot of plans for Kenya’s football and feels he is the right guy for the seat.
“I want to restore hope in Kenyan football. There are so many who have lost hope in our football. I want to give sponsors the confidence that their money is in safe hands. We have good laws for football but these laws must be placed in good hands,” Musonye said.
Asked about his plans if he is to be handed the seat, Musonye revealed that his first priority will be angled at youth development and challenged his opponents to reveal what they have in store for Kenyan football.
“Youth development will be my first priority. Everyone (his opponents) is talking about it but how are we going to implement it. I have a structure that I will give out soon,” he opined.
On some of his achievement in charge of CECAFA, Musonye said: “I have been with CECAFA for21 years and did all I could do to see the body grow.
“When I arrived, we only had two championships that were the Senior Challenge Cup and the Club Championship (Kagame Cup). When I was there, I got an opportunity to bring the U17, U20 for men and the Women Senior Challenge Cup, Women U17 and the U23 Championship. In 2018 we did six competitions and nine in the last year.”
Apart from Musonye, the other person who has shown interest in the top seat is former federation boss Sam Nyamweya.
