Peter Kenneth denies government appointment

17 February 2015, 16:49 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Former presidential candidate Peter Kenneth has denied allegations that he has been handed a government appointment.

According to rumours circulating on social media Tuesday, Kenneth had been appointed to head a caretaker committee that would oversee the running of Kenyan football after the disbandment of the Football Kenya Federation FKF by Sports and Culture Cabinet Secretary Hassan Wario.

The rumours though, turned out to be false and Kenneth himself came out to quash them, saying that he had no clue such a thing was taking place.

He added that he had not received any communication from the government of such a move and that Kenyans should not be duped by rumour mongers.

Kenneth is a former chairman of the now defunct Kenya Football Federation KFF.

" I would like to state that stories of me being named caretaker chairman of Kenyan football are all false and should not be heeded by Kenyans," he said via his Twitter handle.

" There is no substance to the stories and I urge Kenyans not to believe them," he added.

The Football Kenya Federation is in a state of turmoil as they battle with the Kenyan Premier League over the rights of running the country's top flight.

The FKF has said that it will not work with the KPL and that it has started its own league.

However, top flight clubs have all sided with the KPL and they say that they will not be cowed into moving to the FKF league.

The impasse has thus forced world governing body FIFA as well as Wario to intervene but nothing has as yet been agreed between the two parties.

Wario Monday gave the two sides three days to come up with an agreement over the stalemate.

Government interference in football associations across the world always leads to FIFA bans, one which Kenya will be keen to avoid.

" We must agree because this is our game and our players and they need us to make solid decisions on their behalf. That is what you two must agree on," Wario said during the meeting between the FKF, KPL and Sports Ministry.

Kenya is currently ranked 116 in the world.
