1. On February 24, 2022, the FIFA Council vide letter referenced SG/kje/rta/ssa dated February 24, 2022 decided that the lifting of Kenya’s suspension by FIFA will be subject to the following conditions:
  2. The repeal of the Cabinet Secretary’s decision of November 11, 2021, which appointed the Caretaker Committee in lieu of the elected FKF Executive Committee; and
  3. FIFA’s receipt of confirmation from the FKF and its management, led by Vice-President Doris Petra and General Secretary Barry Otieno that the FKF and its premises are once more under their full and unconditional control.

We are, therefore, pleased to confirm that the Government has fulfilled the aforementioned conditions as set out by the FIFA Council, as part of the ongoing efforts by the Government to allow Kenya’s return to international football.

In this regard, the Federation will in the coming days communicate the next steps, including the status of the just concluded 2021/2022 league season and scheduled dates for the kick-off of the 2022/2023 league season.

The Federation wishes to thank the Cabinet Secretary, Hon. Ababu Namwamba, EGH for the critical role he has played in returning Kenyan football to normalcy.
