Further reports have it that assistant Secretary General Noah Wakoli had, in an interview with Nairobi News, blamed the players for disrespect. He accused them of abusing club officials.

And sharing the viral clip on Instagram, a former CAF expert Collins Okinyo wrote:

“The problems that hinder growth in African football
“Imagine these are Women Premier League players in Kenya being ejected out of their house (I see it as hole not house) by an owner apparently for losing 3-0 while not even breakfast was provided before the game.
“Kenya, we have serious problems, and we want to host AFCON?
“We must put our house in order; even many men’s teams are suffering it’s total shame.”

A fan replied:

“It's completely inhumanity, let alone football issues. This man is insane.”

One said:

“Players living in such conditions, and you expect them to win?”

FIFA lifts Kenya’s suspension

Sports Brief earlier reported that FIFA recently lifted the suspension of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF), which has been in place since February this year.

In a letter addressed to FKF's Secretary General Barry Otieno, FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura expressed satisfaction that the impasse between the government and the FKF has since been resolved.

The suspension has been lifted immediately, making Kenya eligible again to participate in international FIFA competitions.
