Harambee starlets are the victims of financial struggles that is facing Kenyan football forcing the football federation to cancel their training schedule ahead of their Olympic qualifier match against Zambia.
The federation president Nick Mwendwa on Tuesday has threatened to withdraw the team from the competition set for November 9 and face sanctions from CAF, which include hefty fines and being blacklisted for next year’s Afcon qualifiers if he does not receive any funding from the ministry.
The federation blames sports PS Kirimi Kaberia for the financial woes troubling his office and demanded an explanation from him regarding why he does not want to support football.
Mwendwa was particulary frustrated during the press conference,and twice clashed with journalist who demande to know how he spends millions of shillings from governing body Fifa, and the OB van which is yet to be delivered two years since it was purchased at a cost of sh135 millon.
Sports PS Kaberia responded to this allegations claiming that Mwendwa is simply being ungrateful and is only diverting attention away from the disappeared OB van,millions of funds from Fifa , and the sh 244 million from the government which remains unaccounted for until today.
It is not the first time the PS has been mention for being the cause of trouble as last Thursday he found himself in conviction after a committee of the National Assembly identified him as the face of troubles killing the ministry.
The Sports Committee accused him of corruption as Webuye West MP Dan Wanyama declared the Ministry of Sports a den of swindling public money and warned CS Amina Mohamed to be careful of her accounting officer.
The twist on who owes who is filled with words but the only thing that stands is the fact that if something is not done Harambee starlets dream of the olyimpic qualifier will go down the drain.
