Former FKF president Sam Nyamweya has said that the decision by  National Executive Committee to ban him from participating in the country’s football activities was mischievous.

Nyamweya on Wednesday morning while spreading during an interview at Royal Media’s citizen television said the decision to ban him from football affected him negatively. 

“I love football and I don’t think whether my love to football will end soon. I didn’t agree with the decision to ban me from participating in football matters in the country but I had to accept it.

"Now that I have bounced back, I will not frustrate anyone because my dreams are to improve football in this country. I am still interested in football matters in the country,” he noted.

He faulted FKF president Nick Mwendwa for failing to manage football in this country since he left the leadership to him. 

“Football management has gone from bad to worse. FKF president Nick Mwendwa has failed than I expected and this is the reason Kenyan trams are not doing well in the football games,” he added. 

Nyamweya was on March 21, 2017 banned from all football activities, locally and internationally, for a period of 10 years.The ban was imposed on him by FKF’s National Executive Committee.

But, on Friday May 25, 2018, the high court quashed the 10 years ban terming it as illegal. Nyamweya is now free to participate in football activities in the country and outside.
