Celebrated Kenyan sports journalist Carol Radull has broken her silence on recent FKF appointments made by Sports Cabinet Secretary Ambassador Amina Mohammed.
CS Mohammed recently appointed a caretaker committee after disbanding the FKF team led by President Nick Mwendwa.
Former EACC Boss Justice Aaron Ringera was appointed to head the caretaker committee while Senior KTN News anchor Lindah Oguttu was appointed head of the secretariat.
Oguttu’s appointment elicited backlash as many wondered why the CS did not settle for Radull who is a highly experienced sports journalist in the country.
New details have, however, emerged indicating that an official from the Ministry approached Radull for a position in the appointments, but things did not work out as planned.
According to Radull, she was approached about the appointments and asked whether she was interested in being part of the team, but her inquisitive nature locked her out.
Radull noted that she asked questions about the role and sought time to think about the same, only for her to see the ministry announcing new members of the team one hour after their call.
“I naively thought they had given me time to weigh pros and cons and to understand what I was getting into. But an hour later... Boom! A list. We move on! Hehe,” she tweeted.
Reacting to Radull’s tweet, Oguttu hailed her for being one of the top sports journalists in the country, adding that another opportunity will soon come her way.
“My sister @CarolRadull you are a a great person with absolutely good grasp of your field. I wish you well..... A door will open for you soon because you deserve it. See you in Dec Nyamin,” she said.
