FIFA ban three Kenyan officials for 'bribery'

Three Kenyan football officials have been banned for 'unethical behaviour and bribery' by the FIFA ethics committee after they were found to have demanded money from referees.

The committee, chaired by Lord Sebastian Coe, uncovered irregularities surrounding the selection of Kenyan referees for the 2007 FIFA list of international referees by the Kenyan Football Federation (KFF).

Allegations surrounding the KFF's nominees for the referees list surfaced in 2006, prompting FIFA to suspend the list of nominees and begin an investigation.

The committee found the KFF had summoned an unusually large number of candidates to the annual selection process for nominees to the list and, against FIFA policy, required them to pay in order to participate.

A FIFA statement said money was also allegedly demanded to be included in the final list and some of the final nominees did not meet the technical requirements for international referees.

Daniel Omino, former general secretary of the KFF, and Wycliffe Ogutu, former chairman of the Kenya Football Referees Association (KFRA), each received five-year bans.

Samson Kawa, former treasurer of the KFRA, received a two-year ban.

Alfred Ndinya, the most senior listed FIFA referee from Kenya, was warned about his future conduct on account of his marginal involvement in this case.
