Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has suspended Nyanza NEC Member Tom Onyango Alila from all football activities with immediate effect.

A statement signed by Kenya FA President Sam Nyamweya confirmed the development. "Tom Onyango Alila the NEC Nyanza representative has been suspended from all football related activities with immediate effect."

"This was arrived after he failed to account on monies handled during his tenure as the Chairman of the FKF Finance committee. The NEC noted that his integrity has been put into test, there for he must step aside to allow for further investigations into the issue," added Nyamweya's statement.

"We need to keep the image of the game clean and we warn other football administrators to maintain integrity while dealing with football matters and will not spare any official who brings the game of football into disrepute."

Nyamweya confirmed that Alila's suspension has now been forwarded to the Kenya FA Disciplinary committee for further investigation and action.

Alila's suspension follows that of executive members; vice-chairman Sammy Sholei and Nairobi Branch chairman Dan Shikanda, who were suspended late last year.
