FKF President Nick Mwendwa has on Wednesday, April 3, 2019, graced a memorial service for the late Hussein Swaleh who was among victims of the Ethiopian Airlines plane crash.
The service, held at the Embu Stadium, was graced by Football Kenya Federation’s top leadership, among them Deputy President Doris Petra, FKF National Executive Committee members and Branch Officials.
“FKF lost not just a Branch Chairman but a dedicated servant of the game, who always supported our football development agenda,” said FKF President Nick Mwendwa.
“As a Federation, we have stood with Swaleh’s family and will endeavor to offer them as much support as we can through these trying times,” he added.
Mr. Swaleh, who once served as the Federation’s General Secretary, was the CAF appointed match commissioner in Egyptian side Ismaily’s CAF Champions League home match against TP Mazembe. The immediate former FKF Lower Eastern Branch Chairman met his untimely death while traveling home from Egypt through Ethiopia.
