Football Kenya Federation with the Ministry Of Health and Ministry Of Sports Culture and Heritage has kick started the Covid-19 vaccination of Women Premier League players.
This is in a move to allow the resumption of football activities in the country after President Uhuru Kenyatta had earlier suspended all sporting activities in the country due to an upsurge of Covid-19 cases in the country.
“This is a good initiative by the federation and the government as it gives the player a sense of hope in that football may return. Overall training has been hard and the girls miss playing football hence I would like to plead with the government to allow the safe return of football with strict Covid-19 protocols.” He pleaded. The Women Premier league allows the players to maintain match fitness and it is also a consistent feeder to the Kenya women national team who are currently building up their vision to qualify for their first Women Cup,” Kayole Starlets Head coach Joshua Sakwa.
Gaspo women, Kibera Soccer Ladies, and Kayole Starlets received the first batch of vaccine with the rest of the teams set to get vaccinated in phases.
