Mwendwa Confirms Administering Of Covid-19 Jab To Residential Players Within Nairobi

Football of Kenya Federation president Nick Mwendwa has confirmed that football players of 11 clubs within Nairobi have received Coronavirus vaccine. The administration of the Covid-19 vaccine indicates that Kenyan football activities in Kenya will resume as soon as possible.

Sporting activities in Kenya were brought to a hault after president Uhuru's speech on 26 of March requiring all sporting activities to stop in order to curb the spread of the third wave of coronavirus pandemic. Presidential speech left many teams in a shock. Many sporting events were scheduled to be occasioned this month and they were negatively impacted. In order to mitigate for those effects, cabinet secretary for sports Amina Mohammed took initiatives to ensure that each participant of sports gets a covid-19 vaccine. The covid-19 jab is given together with a certificate. The certificate will be required as a passport before any player is allowed to take place in any event.

The administration of covid-19 jab is a great relief to both Harambee Stars and Kenya football clubs. Harambee Stars will be starting it's campaign to world cup qualification to Qatar on 5 June against Uganda. Harambee Stars players will be greatly relieved to resume there training so as to prepare for the clash. Kenyan football club will be receiving a big boost to complete the remaining matches. Kenya premier league had only taken 16 games with Tusker Fc leading the table with 36 points.

We hope that all sporting activities will resume as soon as possible.
