March 12th, 2019

A senior Kenyan football official was among the 157 people killed on the Ethiopian Airlines plane that crashed on Sunday, the Confederation of African Football (Caf) confirmed.

Hussein Swaleh, a former secretary general of Kenya’s Football Federation (FKF), had been returning to Nairobi after serving as a match commissioner in Friday’s African Champions League game between Ismaili and TP Mazembe in Egypt.

The plane crashed minutes after take-off from Addis Ababa.

“The President of the Confederation of African Football, Ahmad Ahmad, and all the African football family send their condolences to our dearest Hussein Swaleh Mtetu’s family, his relatives and to the Kenyan Football Federation,” Caf said in a statement.
