Ssendyowa to commission Kenya-Malawi match

Ssendyowa is up the task to ensure a peaceful end of the Kenya-Malawi game this weekend in Nairobi with such charging fans of Harambee stars

The international Football body FIFA, has appointed Abbas Ssendyowa to commission the Kenya-Malawi 2014 World Cup Qualifiers match due this weekend in Nairobi City.

Kenyan Football Federation has given assurance that the game will peacefully go on un disrupted despite the recent suspected bomb blast that left tens injured in the City centre.

Ssendyowa, a FUFA Executive member and retired referee is expected to fly to Nairobi this Thursday evening aboard Kenya Airways.

As a commissioner Ssendyowa will have to do all it costs to avoid a repeat of what transpired in 2000 at Nyayo Stadium when the 2002 World Cup qualifiers game between the two nations was abandoned due to crowd trouble.

Kenya and Malawi have met 35 times, 16 of which have been battles for the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup. The last time the two nations played a competitive game was on September 4th 2004 at Moi Sports centre Kasarani where the hosts won 3-2.
