The talking points of yesterday’s show
Harambee Starlets Sex Scandal
Just when you thought there was something to smile about in Kenyan football, allegations of a sex scandal surface in the starlets’ camp. According to Mike’s investigations, and this is Mike Okinyi we are talking about, the Owaah of sports, some of the players have sexual relations with some coaches. While npot illegal in any way, it just goes against the unspoken rules of sports just as Arnold put it. It just brings about unnecessary conflict as interest; a coach would favour their partner even she isn’t performing. Lawrence Webo, the goal-keeping coach has been named in the scandal and has since been sidelined but FKF states that he is still part of the technical team. We’ll just have to wait for the findings of the investigations. Who knows, #thisiskenya, more relations may just be unearthed. @AlexNgare suggested that we the whole technical team should be made up of women. While it is a good idea, it isn’t practical as not many are qualified.
Nick Mwendwa’s aspiration as FKF chairman was to build Kenyan football from the ground-up; in terms of both youth and grass-root football. It is great to see that for once everything, with regards to the trials, selection and even age verification, has been done as should be ahead of their trip to for the COSAFA tournament. They are in group B together with Zambia, Malawi and Madagascar. People will just want to see their performance under newly appointed technical director Andreas Spier. Wins and all hail FKF. Losses and Kenyans will criticize all their efforts of getting to the 2022 world cup.

Finally, Diallo has pulled a Situmbeko on AFC Leopards. The Interim Secretary General Asava Kadima did everything but explain the logic of “their” player playing for Rayon after his contract was over yet he had preliminary registration with FKF. If clubs can’t get away with such crimes against football, then players shouldn’t. It’s good to know that they will take action. Hope the new management team, to be elected on Sunday, will take up the case. Kadima clearly stated that the new team should change the new constitution and manage the club as a business and not a social gathering.
Soccer Africa had their first episode of the new season aired yester night. You can watch the repeat later on in the day. That’s all for today, have a great Friday.
