    Kenyan government and football federation want the country’s global suspension lifted by world football governing body, FIFA, as they believe they have met the requirements.

    FIFA slammed the ban in February after Kenya’s sports ministry disbanded the football federation over alleged misappropriation of funds and appointed a 27-man caretaker committee in November 2021.

    But now, the federation’s Vice President Doris Petra and General Secretary Barry Otieno have been reinstated to their positions and control of offices handed back to the board, which were conditions demanded by FIFA for the ban to be lifted.

    Consequently, the Football Federation has written to FIFA to request the reversal of the suspension.

    A statement from the federation reads “the government has fulfilled the aforementioned conditions, as set out by the Fifa council, as part of the ongoing efforts to allow Kenya’s return to international football.”

    Cabinet secretary for Youth Affairs, Sports and the Arts, Ababu Namwamba, who had been involved in discussions to resolve the issues say “we were engaged in consultations with a view to finding a resolution to the gridlock that has held Kenyan football hostage for the last year,” Namwamba said.

    “Football is too important to be placed at risk. The government expects 100% integrity in the management of football.”

    Published

    on

    Cables come in different materials, casing, and sizes to accommodate different electrical loads and different conditions in which they’ll be used. While they can be made of aluminium or other materials, most electrical wires are copper.

    Safety is the most important factor to consider when choosing an electrical cable. Because cables are the primary carrier of electricity in your home, you need to make sure every aspect of safety is taken into account. Electric wires are designed to withstand constant electrical current, which means they won’t cause a fire in the event of an accident/short circuit.

    Power cables and wires are one of the most common causes of electrical failure. People often overlook the importance of this material. A good power cable must perform better in the event of electrical failure, overload or sudden electrical spikes. It should also be fire-retardant in the event of any danger.  We have put together the best 4 electrical wires in Nigeria for 2024.
