CAF delegation mourns Ethiopian Airlines crash victim Hussein Swaleh

A Confederation of African Football (CAF) delegation led by ex-Tanzanian Football Federation President Leodegar Tenga met the family of the late KFF Lower Eastern Chairman Hussein Swaleh at Football Kenya Federation (FKF) House, Nairobi on Wednesday.

Swaleh was among the 157 people who perished in the Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday, March 10.

The delegation was joined by President of FKF Nick Mwendwa, Deputy Doris Petra, Secretary General Robert Muthomi and NEC members Chris Amimo and Nabea Muriithi.

”We are here, on behalf of CAF President Ahmad Ahmad, to pass our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Hussein Swaleh. He spent the better part of his adult life serving football, and that cannot go unnoticed,” Tenga said.

”I have lost, not just a Branch Chairman, but a personal friend, who has always supported my football development agenda. As a Federation, we will stand with his family and will offer them support during this trying times.”
