I won’t contest for FKF presidency this year, says Homeboyz star Wanga
Kakamega Homeboyz goal poacher Allan Wetende Wanga has made a hasty retreat declaring that his name will not be on the ballot paper for FKF top seat.
Wanga had last year shown his interest in contesting for the FKF chairmanship but now reckons ‘time is not ripe’ for the challenge.
He however insists he would consider challenging for the seat in future.
“This seat one day I will run for it. For now my name won’t be on the ballot but when the time is ripe then things will unfold as they should,” Wanga said.
Former CECAFA chief Nicholas Musonye and former KFF boss Sam Nyamweya are among those who are keen on unseating Mwendwa in the polls.
It is however not clear when the elections will be held having twice been cancelled by the Sports Disputes Tribunal.
Wanga was surprisingly dropped by the then Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne from the final squad that represented the country in last year’s Africa Cup of Nations held in Egypt, subsequently retiring from international football.
The move sparked calls for Mwendwa to resign with Kakamega Hombeoyz chairman Cleophas ‘Toto’ Shimanyula accusing him of playing politics in the running of football by allegedly influencing the selection of national team players.
Wanga who recalls captaining Harambee Stars in the 2013 Cecafa Senior Challenge tournament which Kenya won says that was his best moment playing for the national team.
“My best moments was in 2013 when I helped AFC Leopards to be crowned FKF Cup winners after beating Gor Mahia and also winning Cecafa Senior Challenge tournament as Harambee Stars captain by beating Sudan 2-0 under the then head coach Adel Amrouche,” Wanga elaborated.
Wanga is currently the Sports Officer in Kakamega County helping the county in tapping talents.
