Kenya sports officials admit to troubles of match-fixing

These four are then exploited and given life by a handful of well-connected international match-fixing cartels that are present at every step of the process.
Football administrators whose views the Nation sought yesterday said that a lot of people participating in the game are involved in match-fixing, except for the fans who are being hoodwinked by the fixers and pliable players.
