Mwendwa confirms Muthomi’s request to step aside

FKF President Nick Mwendwa has confirmed CEO Robert Muthomi’s request to step aside pending an investigation into allegations surrounding the purported transfer of Sofapaka striker John Avire to an undisclosed club in Egypt.

Head of Communications and Marketing Barry Otieno will act in the CEO’s capacity during the period of investigation by the FKF Disciplinary Committee.

Muthomi was adversely mentioned in a transfer saga involving John Avire. In a statement signed by him, Muthomi said that his decision to step aside was to protect his own integrity, and that he had utmost faith in the competence of the FKF judicial process.

“In view of the on-going debate and conversations in regards to the allegations made by Sofapaka on my purported involvement in the transfer of player John Avire, I have this morning requested the FKF president to allow me step aside for investigations to commence.
“While I have utmost faith in the independence and competence of the FKF judicial process as earlier stated, I realize that for my own integrity and that of the office of the FKF general secretary, as well as the greater football public a thoroughly credible process has to be undertaken.
