Following an embarrassing 5-0 defeat yesterday against Mali, it is the right time for the FKF to be disbanded. The defeat was a clear message that the boys lacked motivation. Despite being pooled in one of the cheapest pools, it was a guarantee if the boys were motivated, they could easily sail through. The ministry of sports should focus on improving the team's morale by summoning FKF president Nick Mwendwa and ensuring that it comes up with a lasting solution. Over the years, the countries national football team has been a source of embarrassment. Kenya has pretty good players, but lack of leadership has killed performance.
The sports ministry should ensure that every player is accorded proper care and allowances, just like our neighbors in Uganda do to their sportsmen. With harsh economic times, players find it so hard to commit to the national team and in the process. They participate in the competition to get the allowances, but deep down, they are depressed because they wonder how they will sustain their bills when they get home.
Kenya is blessed with talented coaches and old players, and the country should focus on ensuring that these groups are effectively utilized. We should avoid the game of outsourcing managers, yet we have good managers. if truly they need an outsourced manager, they should go for a quality manager, not this "mitumba" individuals who have no history of management and the remaining cash be paid to players
