Why Ruto is Rooting For Former Vihiga Governor Moses Akaranga to Take over FKF

The political intrigues of the Football Kenya Federation Presidential bid just got a notch higher. Nick Mwendwa is staring at a gigantic battle especially with all the indication that Deputy President William Ruto is rooting for Moses Akaranga as the next president.

This is in line with the DP’s 2022 political calculation – Ruto is willing to channel his resources towards Akaranga campaigns in his quest to lock in Luhya votes. In a race that is quickly taking political shape, the immediate formed seat holder Sam Nyamweya is another force to reckon with and it’s said that opposition Chief Raila Odinga is backing his candidature in a fierce attempt to recapture the seat.

SportsPesa CEO Ronald Karauri could be angling as a spoiler and boasting of the financial prowess and popularity among football stakeholders courtesy of the popular betting firm.

Speaking in Kakamega, Akaranga declared that he was the new broom that would sweep FKF clean and promised to transform the sport locally by making it more professional.

He promised to transform local football by making it more professional if offered a chance. Akaranga said he is keen to bring more reforms in football in a bid to attract sponsors. 

”It beats logic to see teams representing the country like Gor Mahia struggling to make ends meet due to lack of support yet little was being done to reverse the trend.

“I’m a serious and major football stakeholder having propelled Vihiga United to great heights. I am also doing the same with Vihiga Bullets who are now playing in the National Super League,” he added. 

The former County boss also said that under his leadership, he will ensure the national team, Harambee Stars’ selection is fair and captures the regional representation. “I also want to ensure women soccer is well supported and managed,” he added. 

“We need to see players from all corners of the country playing in the national team. We can’t continue doing things in the same way and expect different results,” pointed out Akaranga.

“We are aware of a few individuals who are now tempering with lists of delegates and trying to lock out some teams from certain regions,” he claimed.
