World Football governing body, FIFA has suspended Kenya from all international football competitions because of government interference, FIFA President Gianni Infantino announced.
The ban means no Kenyan team, including the clubs looking for an opportunity at the Confederation of African Football (CAF) tournaments, will be able to play internationally.
It also translates that neither the Football Kenya Federation nor any of its members or officials may benefit from any development programs, courses or training organized by FIFA and/or CAF.
FIFA said the Country will remain suspended until the Football Kenya Federation (FKF), which was dissolved last year by the Kenyan government is reinstated.
The decision comes barely a week after the women’s national team Harambee Starlets were disqualified from the Africa Women Cup of Nations qualifiers against Uganda that was set for February 17th.
FIFA also announced it was banning Zimbabwe for similar reasons.
