BREAKING: FKF boss Sam Nyamweya quits

10 February 2016, 14:13 Dennis Masinde

Nairobi - Football Kenya Federation boss Sam Nyamweya has quit office and will not contest the Presidential elections.

Nyamweya announced during the 2016 FKF General Meeting at the Safaricom Stadium in Kasarani that he would not vie for the Presidency as he moves forward to spend time with his family and business interests.

" I think it is time that I respect the wishes of my family and step aside to allow others take over Kenyan football. I have served my time and now request to go back home," he said Wednesday.

Nyamweya has been in football administration for over 20 years.

He is currently facing criminal charges for his role in the mess that has affected national team Harambee Stars in recent times, especially a nearly aborted trip to Cape Verde in November.

Elections are currently set to take place and with Nyamweya set to miss out.

He will hand over to expected front runners Ambrose Rachier and Nick Mwendwa.
