Ringera gives Caretaker Committee 85 per cent rating
Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed yesterday received a report from the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Caretaker Committee chairman Aaron Ringera who gave his team a rating of 85 per cent, on the eve of the committee’s end of a six-month tenure.
While rating his team Ringera said the committee had overachieved in its their mandate, the only shortcoming being validation of the draft constitution that could have paved way for fresh elections.
“My team scored straight As, in our roles, the only one we didn’t achieve was validation of the draft constitution, but I am pleased because my team managed 85 per cent score-card,” Ringera said yesterday.
The retired appellate judge believes that the technical management of the local leagues had improved and not declined as perceived by majority of fans and other stakeholders.
“Claims that our leagues are some of the worst managed leagues now are too harsh. I also think the financial positions of the leagues and most of the clubs has improved because we have been constantly disbursing funds to clubs,” said Ringera even as some clubs stare at imminent financial collapse and quality of match officials continue to be questioned due to numerous controversial decisions during matches.
Ringera was talking at the Kasarani Stadium when he handed over his team’s report to Amina, which had several recommendations.
While receiving the committee report, Amina said she would make an announcement on the way forward for Kenyan football on Thursday.
Among the concerns that arose were the vacuum that will be created by the exit of the Caretaker Committee in the running of the remaining league matches and whether Kenya who were drawn in Group C of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers will be part of the campaign.
