FIFA suspends Kenya and Zimbabwe over govt interference

The world’s football governing body has suspended Kenya and Zimbabwe citing government interference.

FIFA said both countries knew what was expected to be done for the suspension to be lifted.

Kenya’s sports ministry disbanded the Football Kenya Federation over alleged misappropriation of funds and appointed a caretaker committee.

FIFA had warned the government at the time.

The Zimbabwe Football Association was disbanded over sexual harassment allegations.

The ban means that the two countries cannot take part in international competitions until the suspension is lifted.
