Mombasa unhappy with CECAFA allocation

21 November 2013, 15:43 Sumba Bwire

Mombasa - Football Kenya Federation South Coast Branch acting vice –chairman Ismael Ogolla Mohammed has criticized the decision to award Mombasa only four matches in the upcoming CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.

Ismael is demanding Mombasa host even the semi-finals finals of the championship

‘’It is not a privilege that we are asking for but it is our right to host the semi-finals matches’’ said Ismael.

The tough talking veteran sports administrator disclosed that the coastal region needs an expert or somebody who could fight for their rights in so far as organizing the such matches and it is not too late to go to the drawing board because some counties listed are not ready to host the CECAFA matches.

Ismael further revealed the Branch will meet soon to chart the way forward, calling the development a raw deal.

 ‘’Our Branch wants to know what transpired. Mombasa is well known for its infrastructure including the transport system, hotels and accommodation which cannot be compared to any other city with an exception of Nairobi to host a championship of this nature.

Ismael stated that the Branch should have been involved with the so called bidding committee for hosting CECAFA  matches in Mombasa.

While the Branch is not blaming the governor Hon. Ali Hassan Joho, they insist he should have consulted the branch before deciding with CECAFA on the matches to be played in Mombasa.

According to the fixture released by CECAFA, Mombasa will host, subject to confirmation, four quarter finals matches of the CECAFA scheduled to be played on 7’th and 8’th, December, 2013.
