A top Kenyan football official Hussein Swaleh was named among the 157 people killed on the Ethiopian Airlines plane that crashed on Sunday.

Mr Swaleh, a former secretary general of Kenya’s Football Federation (FKF), was part of the tragic accident.

He was reported to be 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.

The Kenyan Football Federation boss Nick Mwendwa, paid his own tribute:

Hussein Swaleh served as the FKF’s secretary general between 2000 and 2004 and was in the post when Kenya last played at the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Tunisia in 2004.
