Kenyan Football Has What It Takes To Be The Best In Africa, We Just Need Better Governance (Opinion)

Back in the early 2000's,Kenyan football was on the rise to become one of the best in the whole of Africa.This was after they managed to qualify for their first ever African cup of nations tournament in 2002.It was expected that they would end up qualifying for successive African nations tournaments and eventually the world cup.This however did not end up being the case as our football went from to top to bottom.All this was because of a bad football governing body which is Football Kenya Federation popularly known as FKF.In my opinion,it is not too late to become the best in Africa as we have what it takes.We have good sporting facilities and talented players that can take us back to the top.All that needs to be done is get a better governing body.One that will not tolerate corruption,embezzlement of funds and lack of payment to players.It would be much better if the governing body is made up of former players who understand what needs to be done.
