The reasons they have given for the change in heart sound like those of an estranged lover.
Oh this, oh that..
Then this, then that..
Like they have a point to prove to the rest of the world.
It is obvious that the federation and CECAFA Secretary General Nicholas Musonye are not the best of friends.
Going way back, Musonye has always been a critic of Kenyan federations and the way they are run.
He and Sam Nyamweya are not new to each other when it comes to feuding like ten year old's over a lollipop.
Musonye has always chosen to speak the truth and highlight the various blunders that the likes of Nyamweya have committed, while Nyamweya has always been of the opinion that Musonye should mind his own business
Thus the feuding and eventual mind-games and public spats.
Which is why FKF said they spoke to CECAFA chair Leodegar Tenga and not Musonye as concerns taking part in the Challenge Cup.
They just can't stomach Musonye.. can they??
But that is just what Musonye wants I guess. He wants them in a corner, he wants them to be accountable for their actions. He has a right though, doesn't he.. If not for his position at CECAFA, he is Kenyan.
That is why Musonye is a warrior.. he has taken FKF head on and demands they do things the right way.
He is just doing the right thing, which in my opinion, deserves the support of Kenyans.
Never have missed
Anyway, despite the fact that FKF said they would boycott the challenge Cup, do you really think they would?
I highly doubt it. In fact, they would have been the ones who would lose out by not going.
How would the young and local players get experience without the Challenge Cup? what about the sanctions that would have been thrown in..
And what if the Harambee Stars won it.. the prize money...
They just had to go, which is what Musonye knew all the way.
Thanks to Mr Musonye though, we have FKF on toes.. They know that if they make a mistake, he will be on their case..
Well done sir.
