“Kenyans pretend to be football fans, after failing to turn out to watch matches at the Cecafa Senior Challenge, it’s a big failure in terms of attendance. It’s a waste of time bringing a competition to people who won’t watch, I will never fight for any competition to come to this country again”
That was Cecafa’s Secretary general, Nicholas Musonye, a Kenyan, back in 2009.
I should start by saying that I think Musonye was harsh, but there is much to learn from his words.
I am a football man, a Kenyan football man. I believe that I appreciate the game for what it is… a game. Not all of you are football fans, but it is still the most popular game by far in this country. Football, believe it or not, deserves to be a source of national pride and, most importantantly, worth our attention.
