Kenya to seek Caf backing 2/6/2007
A faction of the Kenya Football Federation will be sending a delegation to Confederation of African Football (Caf) to try and get its backing in the country''''s row with Fifa.
The government-backed faction said the six-man delegation, headed by former KFF secretary general Hussein Swaleh, will travel to Cairo next week to ask Caf to convince Fifa to reinstate the east African nation.

Peter Ochiel, the head of a government-backed football normalisation committee, said his team had written a letter to Fifa President Sepp Blatter, arguing that the government only interferes with the running of the sport when feuding factions failed to resolve their rows.

"The government came to intervene (when there was a problem). Fifa should be applauding the government, not criticising it," he added.

Last week, Fifa chided Nairobi for its continued interference in the sport despite recent efforts by the KFF to improve its administration.

Fifa also gave the Kenyan authorities until 28 February "to fully respect the Fifa statutes" or the country faces continued suspension.

However the Kenyan government has told Fifa to keep out of its domestic affairs and stop meddling with efforts to clean up the sport, which has been racked by infighting and corruption.

If the ban is not lifted, Kenya will miss qualifiers for the African Cup of Nations. Kenyan football has been plagued by woes in recent years and last October''''s Fifa suspension was its second in two years.

The country was first suspended in 2004 for three months over government interference.
