World body Fifa concerned with Kenya’s decision not advertise CEO’s position

EXCLUSIVE: The source says Fifa have no problem with Aduda being the CEO but want the post advertised and a person picked to manage the office Kenya can exclusively reveal that World governing soccer body FIFA are increasingly getting concerned with the continuity stay of Omondi Aduda as Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

A source who sought anonymity, says Fifa want the CEO’s post advertised. “Fifa are not happy that since they (Fkf) took office they are yet to advertise the CEO’s post as required.”

“They (Fifa) want the post advertised and a qualified person picked to manage the position. (Fifa) don’t have any problems with Aduda being in office…no, but they want the constitution followed and also feel the new appointment is long overdue,” added the source.

The source continued, "If the position is advertised and Aduda gets it back, Fifa have no problem with that. There concern is that the position is supposed to be advertised and FKF are pulling there legs on the same."

Aduda was appointed the federation’s CEO after the all inclusive elections ushered in a new office headed by Chairman Sam Nyamweya. Aduda was then supposed to serve for 90 days before the federation advertised the post.

When reached for comment, Aduda could not confirm nor deny the allegations but said he had no problem if the federation goes ahead and advertises the post.

“I have the requirements to be the CEO and people should understand that am not in football to die. I was in Tunisia two days ago with Fifa officials and nobody mentioned the issue. Should the federation feel that to advertise the position is the way to go…then I have no problem but oblige.”

Chairman Nyamweya could not be reached for comment.
