Kenyan football official alleges death threats

Jul 23 2013, 5:30am CDT | by IANS

Nairobi, July 23 (IANS) The murky world of Kenyan football administration took another dark turn when an official at loggerheads with federation boss, Sam Nyamweya, claimed his life was in danger.

Nairobi, July 23 — The murky world of Kenyan football administration took another dark turn when an official at loggerheads with federation boss, Sam Nyamweya, claimed his life was in danger.

In a statement circulated to local media Monday, Hussein Terry, the Football Kenya Federation (FKF)'s National Executive Committee member for the country's Coast region alleged he had been accosted by unknown persons last weekend, reports Xinhua.

In a swift rejoinder, the FKF top brass claimed his allegations were baseless and, "he is just deflecting attention from the fact that he has nothing against our chairman and the National Executive."

Terry, who had been summoned Monday to appear before the NEC to explain his claims that over $400,000 deposited in the federation accounts had disappeared however, maintained he was a victim of a planned attack to silence him.

"After my interview at QFM (local radio station) July 20, I was attacked by hooligans that I suspected had been sent by the Federation officials after I had presented documents showing how money has been embezzled by the top officials.

"The intention was and still is to scare me from further pursuing the matter with the Police, as usual, so that it dies a natural death like many cases have, in this country. I am determined by all means to pursue the case until justice for football in this country is done," Terry's statement read.

He went on to make further claims of impropriety surrounding the recent trip Kenya's national football team, Harambee Stars, made to Zambia to participate in the Confederation of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) Cup as a guest side.

"I have received over eight calls from our national team players who participated in the COSAFA tournament; they confirmed not having received their allowances as per requirement.

"This is unacceptable, and a clear indication of mismanagement at FKF and I'm also calling upon the long arm of this government to speed up the corruption case so that we may all and move on to other things after a verdict has been reached," Terry alleged.
