Vihiga Bullets attended an integrity workshop on Thursday, January 18, 2024 at the Village Inn Hotel, Nairobi.

The workshop, conducted by Football Kenya Federation’s Integrity Officer, Mike Kamure, focused primarily on the prevalent issue of match-fixing in football.

Players and team officials delved into an interactive session focused on understanding and combating match-fixing. This encouraged open dialogue and sharing of experiences.

Participants also learned to recognize red flags and the various techniques utilized by fixers to approach players, such as establishing friendships and exploiting players’ financial needs.

Moreover, they were encouraged to resist any approach by match-fixers or their agents and sensitized on the importance of reporting suspicious activities or advances. Emphasis was placed on the role of players and officials as fair play ambassadors to keep the integrity of the game intact.

By the end of the session there was a heightened awareness about match-fixing dangers and consequences through discussion of real-life examples, and case studies on match-fixing methods and its impact on the players, officials and the game of football.

Football Kenya Federation plans extensive match-fixing education across the country as a measure to curb match fixing in sport.
