Two warring factions of Football Federation Kenya (Kajiado Chapter) have buried the hatchet and vowed to work together in building the sport.
The factions, one led by Alex Musikeri and another led by Kennedy Bwibo agreed to work together during an impromptu meeting at Kitengela.
Musikeri and Bwibo have been fighting over the seat of chairman in a protracted war in the last two years.
The unity meeting which took place on February 8 at T-Tot Hotel was attended by the Kajiado FKF officials; Musikeri (chairman), Nathaniel Shukuru (secretary general), members; Charles Koge, Bwibo, David Gikonyo, Awilo Makori, Daniel Wafula and Emmanuel Ndegwa.
The agenda lined up for the day was unity within the football fraternity and mainly in the leadership and development of football in the count.
Koge, who was the convener of the meeting apologised to all other members who felt he might have annoyed in the football leadership and moved on to welcome other members to make their contributions.
Bwibo, who had been in the opposing camp, appreciated all those who responded positively by attending the meeting.
Musikeri reiterated Bwibo’s call for unity and noted with concern that wrangles within the leadership of Kajiado F.K.F sub branch has pulled back development of clubs in the county.
He said unless the elected leaders settle their own differences the outcome of the peace meeting will be a waste of time.
All members present agreed that the following shall be absorbed in their sub branch executive committee to ran and manage football.
They are; Koge (Member – Kajiado East), Ndegwa (Treasurer) and Gikonyo (Member – Kajiado North).
All the members were asked to preach harmony and work together.
