The Kenya Footballers Welfare Association (KEFWA) will hold the first players’ congress on 24th August 2019, at the Tamarind Hotel in Nairobi.
As it has been the norm in the previous meetings organized by KEFWA, teams that feature in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL), Women Premier League (WPL), National Super League (NSL) and the Women Division One League (WD1) will each send a representative to attend the one-day event.
Shedding light on some of the major activities of the day; The KEFWA Secretary-General Jerry Santo gave a sneak peak of the objectives and expected outcomes of the Congress.
“The main objective of this congress is to set up a working structure that incorporates and shares our annual work plan with our members. Training on players Contracts, players’ welfare, equality, and allowances will also form a major part of the discussions,” said Santo.
Notably, Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) and National Dispute Resolution Chamber (NDSC) are also valuable topics that will be covered to offer insight to the players, so that the information can trickle down to their clubs.
In 2018, KEFWA held a captains workshop that served as a great platform to discuss an array of issues. This will, therefore, act as a continuation of a journey that was started, as well as help in gauging the progress.
