More bad news for Kenya

Kenya's national soccer team has been disqualified from participating in the East and Central Africa Senior Challenge Cup in Rwanda, regional football ruling body confirmed Sunday.

They came to this decision after Kenya's national team refused to participate in the tournament till they are paid for matches they played earlier this year.

The Kenya Football Federation (KFF) has been fined $2000 for not showing up at the tournament.

Back in September, FIFA gave the KFF three months to get their house in order or face disciplinarian action. FIFA will hold a meeting in a couple weeks to decide what progress has been made. If the actions of the last few days are any indication, Kenya is a long way from having an organized house. KFF officials were saying earlier today that they could have a team at the tournament before they were needed to play, however the Council of East and Central Africa Football Association (CECAFA) doesn't want to hear any of it. My guess is the CECAFA is tired of excuses.
