FIFA warn Kenyan federation over parallel leagues

NAIROBI, Oct 11 (Reuters) - FIFA has told Kenya's football federation (KFF) it has no mandate to run the east African nation's championship as the release of fixtures for parallel leagues compounded chaos.

KFF and its rival Kenya Premier League (KPL) on Tuesday published match schedules for parallel championships - the second time in as many months this has happened amid a battle for control.

Kenya's top football clubs have split into two factions but Jerome Champagne, FIFA Delegate of the President for special affairs, said KFF does not have the right to decide which teams should participate.

'Clubs participating in leagues are not decided by federations, but by independent boards, in this case KPL,' he told Reuters from Zurich on Wednesday.

Despite a warning from FIFA President Sepp Blatter for Kenya to sort out the mess by Oct. 18 or face sanctions, both the KFF and the KPL are ploughing their own courses.

Last month the Kenyan government gave one of the two rival bodies an ultimatum to dissolve voluntarily or be forced to deregister. The government did not say which of the two bodies should close down but observers said it would be KPL.

Kenya was threatened with suspension from all soccer activity at FIFA's annual congress in Marrakesh in October 2005 because of government interference in the running of the sport.
