CAF, NOC-K hail Mwendwa on election, ask him to deliver on Olympics dream
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) and National Olympic Committee of Kenya(NOCK) have lauded Nick Mwendwa on his re-election victory on Saturday, which handed him a fresh new four-year term at the helm of Football Kenya Federation.
CAF boss Ahamad Ahmad, in letter to Mwendwa, said he was not surprised by the ‘brilliant election’ (victory) noting that is a confirmation of the high efficiency of the federation works under Mwendwa, since he assumed office in 2016.
“On behalf of the Executive Committee of CAF and personally, I wish you every success in your endeavors,” read part of the letter sent to president Mwendwa, signed by CAF president Ahmad Ahmad.
This second term, which you obtained by an impressive majority, is the demonstration that your entire term has been appreciated and strongly supported.
“I encourage you on this path to success which reflects the prestigious ambition of the Kenyan nation which has made the sport a national priority,” said Ahmad.
On the other hand, NOCK, in a letter signed by its acting secretary Francis Mutuku challenged Mwendwa to deliver a national football team to the Olympics.
“Mr Mwendwa, can we now challenge you to deliver to Kenya a team to participate in the Olympics! We trust and believe you can do it,” the one page letter read in part.
