Football Kenya Federation has banned former boss Sam Nyamweya.

Goal understands that the federation has slapped Nyamweya with a 10-year ban from the country’s football matters for violating the body’s constitution.

This development comes one month after the former president lodged a formal court case against FKF and Sports Disputes Tribunal over what was the league’s stand-off.

He particularly accused FKF President Nick Mwendwa and his CEO Robert Muthomi for wanting to manage KPL, a league he says is a preserve of Kenyan Premier League Limited. 

On the other hand, it had emerged that he embezzled funds meant for one of the federation’s branches and this ban may just be a decision by FKF to finally crack the whip on the man, whose regime has been accused of many misappropriations.

When reached for comment, he confirmed to Goal the receipt of the letter from FKF but rubbished the move insisting that he is not answerable to the federation at the moment.

“Yes, I have received a letter from FKF banning me from the country’s football matters but the question is; I’m I a member of the federation to warrant a ban? The answer is NO. It then means that I cannot be affected by the same.”

Here is part of the letter:

It will be intriguing to see how the whole issue ends.
