FKF begins AFCON match probe

20 August 2014, 21:00

Nairobi - The Kenyan Football Federation have confirmed the investigation into alleged match-fixing during their 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Lesotho has begun.

The Harambee Stars saw their hopes of making next year's Morocco showpiece ended following their 1-0 aggregate defeat to the Crocodiles, having lost their opener in Lesotho before drawing 0-0 in Kenya at the beginning of August.

Adel Amrouche has since been forced to relinquish the coaching reins, while the other staff members have also been relieved of their duties, although the FKF believe foul play marred the two legs, most notably the first, and an investigation has since gotten underway.

"We intend to call all football stakeholders, apart from members of the disbanded technical bench, and intend to come up with a comprehensive report that will not only point out what went wrong but also how to improve in future," investigative committee chair Moni Wekesa said.

FKF secretary general Michael Esakwa added that Kenya's government have also been brought up to speed, saying: "We have duly briefed Sports Cabinet Secretary Hassan Wario and the findings of the task force and recommendations shall be made public so that we know what happened on that day."
