Nairobi, Kenya, Oct 3 – The Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) has given Football Kenya Federation 30 days to pay former Harambee Stars head coach Adel Amrouche Sh103mn (1mn USD) for wrongful dismissal or Kenya risks being shut out from the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

In a letter sent to the Federation by Amrouche’s lawyers, the Algerian born Belgian tactician should be paid the amount in 30 days from October 1.

“We have received the demand letter from the lawyers and now the only thing we have to do is pay up. We have tried to delay it for the last four years but on e the verdict from CAS is out, we just have to go through with it,” Mwendwa told Capital Sport.

“The lawyers had said they want the payment by 19th of this month but the law allows for 3p days from the day we received the letter, that is Tuesday October 1,” he further stated.

Mwendwa now says they will have to liaise with the government to raise the amount to ensure Kenya is hit lo ked out from the World Cup qualifiers with the Federation having targeted to qualify for the Football festival scheduled for Qatar.

“The government has known this all through and we have involved the from when we entered office. We will have to liaise with them to raise that amount,” stated the Federation chief.
