The Head of the women football in Somalia now says her life is in danger after reporting the local football Association to FIFA for embezzling funds, prompting her to flee Mogadishu.
She wants FIFA to expedite investigations and take actions against the officials whom she says were an impediment to the growth of the game in the country.
Last month, Shaima Mohamed reached out to world football governing body to take action, claiming money made available by FIFA to support the women’s game in her country is not reaching its intended target.
She divulged to TUKO.co.ke that she has received numerous threats to her life, with some telling her to quit the sporting activity all together or face dire consequences, forcing her to flee the country.
