Kenya Football:KCB supports Ligi Ndogo

For a long time I'm writing one something positive on Kenyan football. Kenya Commercial Bank has shown intention of supporting youth football in Kenya by sponsoring the Ligi Ndogo. This is a league modelled for youth aged between 6-16 years who play over the weekends at common grounds in Nairobi-usually the Ligi Ndogo grounds on Ngong Road.
Over the years, most parents have found it worthwhile sending their football crazy kids there as well as serve up a place to hone their skills. Against this backdrop a number of corporate firms have shown interest and last year there was some support from Coca-Cola.
With these firms showing an interest as many others will probably do in the run-up to the 2010 World Cup, Kenya football officials are busy digging deeper into their mess.
What federation signs a club coach (who performs beyond expectation with minimal resources) and fail to renew or upgrade his contract ?
As I write, we don't even have a team coach , why ?
With a major tournament in sight, the national team is yet to set camp for residential training. Are we that confident or do the officials know something we don't ?
Have we known who will run Kenyan football, Football Kenya or KFF or any of what Kenyan officials make us believe is the federation running Kenyan football ?
I'll stop at that before I get worked up .....
