USIU-Africa Alumni Mr. David Thiru, has been appointed the manager for the newly merged Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL). He will now be tasked with managing the Kenya Premier League's operations, which kicked off on November 28, 2020.
Thiru graduated from USIU-Africa in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration (currently referred to as Bsc. International Business Administration). He is also currently an adjunct faculty teaching Entrepreneurship at the Chandaria School of Business.
In an interview with the Star newspaper, he said that with the experience he has, both in the management of football and in education, he believes that he is well prepared to serve. He added that he was not there to earn a salary but to expand opportunities for the youth and for the country to benefit. “I also have a passion to improve on the Kenyan football product out," concluded Thiru.
David was part of the team that spearheaded the launch of Alumni Endowment fund which aims at raising funds through the Alumni Association and well-wishers to support gifted but underprivileged students.
