Mwendwa calls out for support from Ministry of Sports to Harambee Stars and Starlets

Ahead of the international break, FKF President Nick Mwendwa has called out on the Ministry of Sports to offer support to both Harambee Stars and Starlets. 

Kenya Men's team Harambee Stars are set to travel to Egypt to take on the Pharaohs in their first leg of their AFCON Qualifier on November 11th. The National team will face Togo four days later, on November 19, 2019, at the MISC Kasarani. Meanwhile, Starlets will take on Zambia in the Olympic Qualified with the first leg set to be played at home on November 8th while return leg scheduled on November 12th in Zambia. 

However, due to a lack of funding from the Sports Ministry, the National teams risk pulling out of these competitions.

"FKF has diligently communicated to the Sports Ministry and the Sports Fund to come in and fund the national teams. We have, however, not received any response from the Ministry, which is frustrating," said Mwendwa. 

"We are calling out on the Ministry to come out with reasons why we cannot get funding from the Sports Fund despite having made numerous requests for the same," he added.

Mwenda has urged the Ministry of Sports' Principal Secretary and Cabinet Secretary to address the matter as they may pull out from the competitions.
