On May 11,the outgoing Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Caretaker Committee presented its report on the way forward to Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed as its six-month mandate came to an end.

Committee chairman and retired judge Aaron Ringera noted the new document would put football back on track with well laid down procedures,ensure elections of the FKF officials are conducted in compliance with the Constitution of Kenya, the Sports Act and the new FKF Constitution among others.
