According to a close source, the audit team that was appointed by the Ministry of Sports to look at the books of the Football Kenya Federation, FKF recommended a government takeover.

FKF president, Nick Mwendwa while appearing before the Senate on Thursday said that they have nothing to hide and are open to scrutiny.

Such a takeover could lead to FIFA banning Kenya from playing football as it is deemed as third party interference.

Kenya is scheduled to face Uganda and Rwanda in back to back FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifiers this month.

While Vihiga Queens are supposed to begin their CAF Women’s Champions League campaign in Cairo, Egypt on Saturday.

Should FIFA ban Kenya all the teams will be recalled.
