A ban preventing Kenya from taking part in international football activities has been lifted after nine months.

A ban preventing Kenya from taking part in international football activities has been lifted after nine months.

Football governing body FIFA notified the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) on Monday the decision was made following the reinstatement of the federation’s executive committee by Kenya’s new sports minister.

The ban took effect on February 24 after the sports ministry disbanded the FKF over alleged misappropriation of funds and appointed a caretaker committee.

The FIFA letter stated that “upon the lifting of the suspension, a FIFA-CAF mission will be deployed to Nairobi in order to define the next steps for the FKF and also meet with the newly appointed Cabinet Secretary for Sports.”
