Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed on Friday appointed a transition committee to manage football activities in the country for the next five weeks.

Amina, who had on Wednesday received a report from the outgoing Football Kenya Federation Caretaker Committee, appointed another committee also headed by Retired Justice Aaron Ringera to help FKF transition to the next phase.

"In exercise of the powers conferred by section 54 (1) of the Sports Act, 2013, the Cabinet Secretary for Sports, Culture and Heritage appoints the Football Kenya Federation Transition Committee..." read the Gazette Notice on Friday.

The members of the Transition Committee, which is largely made up of the members from the outgoing Caretaker Committee, are Aaron Ringera (Chairperson), Maurice Oyugi (Vice-Chairperson), Ali Amour, Bobby Ogolla, Neddy Atieno, Ceasar Handa, Hassan Haji, J. J. Masiga (Dr.), Michael Muchemi, Rachael Kamweru, Mwangi Muthee and
Anthony Isayi.
