Neither Arteta nor Murinho can save Harambee Stars, says Mwendwa

Published

The FKF honcho made the startling remarks during an interview with NTV on Tuesday evening, saying the current crop of players were all below par.

Not even the intervention of Arsenal’s Mike Arteta or AS Roma’s Jose Murinho can salvage Harambee Stars from the jaws of defeat, FKF President Nick Mwendwa has admitted

“So let’s look at Mali for example, are we better than Mali? The Answer is that we are not because we have never brought out our players to that level. I want to tell Kenyans that we want to win and I am working every day to make Kenya win,” he said.

Mali drubbed Kenya 5-0 in Morocco in the first leg encounter before pipping the East African nation 1-0 again in their own backyard in the repeat tie at Nyayo Stadium on Sunday.

The outcome sent Harambee Stars packing from the continental showpiece that is being staged to identify Africa’s representatives in the forthcoming World Cup slated for Qatar next year.

Mwendwa said it would be an uphill task bringing the Kenyan lads at par with the crème de la crème of the world.

He, however, tipped Stars to emerge from the streak of defeat, adding he observed marked improvement in their performance at Nyayo Stadium on Sunday.

“We went away to Mali, I would say that we played very well but conceded five goals of which four were in the first half which obviously made it very tough.

Playing within three days against a team that has beaten you five is normally very tough. But on Sunday we really played very well though we couldn’t utilise our chances where we lost 1-0 and this one leaves us not in a very good place,” Mwendwa said.

Senator Malala, ANC party SG in heated exchange over DP Ruto’s Eldoret rally

Published

on

In a statement, the youthful politician stated that he did not attend the rally on behalf of Amani Nation Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi as widely claimed on social media.

Malala argued that as an elected leader, his responsibility is to lead his people to the right direction before making any decision ahead of the August 9 General Elections. 

“In my address, I did not say that I was representing the ANC party or the party leader. As an elected leader, my role is to propel our members towards forming the next government.

Anyway, our new SG is still under orientation,” Malala wrote on Twitter. 

The Senator issued the statement after ANC through its Secretary-General Simon Gakuru distanced itself from Ruto’s rally, denying sending any representative.
