Players and officials from Posta Rangers Football Club have been taken through lessons on the integrity of football by the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Integrity Officer Mike Kamure.
The team was educated on what match-fixing is, why it is critical to protect football’s integrity, and how to recognize, resist, and report suspicious incidents.
Posta Rangers was also guided through the detection of match-fixing in the game and reporting mechanisms, which included the FIFA portal, the FKF Integrity Portal, and the FKF Integrity Hotline number +254790115228.
Posta Rangers assistant captain Suleiman Ousman urged his fellow players to comply with the integrity laws of the football game to eradicate match-fixing and help grow the game.
“Despite the financial constraints that we are currently facing as football players, we should strive to uphold our moral compass and desist from match-fixing of our games. This way we are going to have a clean, good and competitive game that in the long run will help attract sponsors,” he opined.
Football Kenya Federation has previously held sessions with Bandari, Kariobangi Sharks, Tusker, Ulinzi, and KCB in the FKF Premier league with Gor Mahia and Kenya Police scheduled to have a session on Saturday, November 12, and Monday, November 14, 2022, respectively.
FKF Premier League Club Chairmen and CEOs, ongoing CAF C Coaching course participants, and FKF County Women Representatives have also completed the integrity course.
