Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has finally cracked the whip by replacing suspended Hamisi Mwayoyo as South Coast branch chairman with immediate effect.
A statement signed by Kenya FA President Sam Nyamweya and obtained by Goal.com reveals that Mohammed Nyonyo, who was the branch’s vice-chairman, has been elevated to act as the chairman while Garero Mwaura becomes the acting vice-chairman to fill the void left by Nyonyo.
Teresia Wakeso becomes branch women representative replacing Asha Pili, who was suspended alongside Mwayoyo.
The statement from Nyamweya read in part, “Consequent upon serious allegations of unbecoming conduct act of indiscipline on the part of Mr. Hamisi Mwayoyo intended to place the image of the federation into disrepute contrary to the spirit of the constitution, the Kenya FA uphold the decision of the South Coast branch to suspend Mr. Mwayoyo from office.”
Mwayoyo was accused of organising tournaments contrary to the National Executive Committee (Nec) resolutions that tournaments be held at the end of all the leagues.
Taita Taveta sub-branch Treasurer Mwangombe Thoya alleged Mwayoyo has also been inciting other branch officials not to attend meetings convened by Coast Nec member Hussein Terry.
On the other hand, Pili was accused of soliciting for sponsorship using branch letter heads without the authority of the branch officials, which is tantamount to forgery and impersonation.
