FIFA President Sepp Blatter made global headlines Tuesday evening when he announced that he would resign less than a week after reelection.

 

His resignation follows the indictment of 14 FIFA officials by US and Swiss Governments on graft allegations.

 

The hash tag #SeppBlatter shot to the top of the trends page as Kenyans gave their views on the exit of the man who has been at the head of Football’s global governing body.

 

Below are some of the views that Kenyans on social media had:

 

‏@CarolRadull  #SeppBlatter to resign as #FIFAPresident. Nyamweya should be next ama? #TheScoreKE

 

@SpryVoice : Remember #SeppBlatter has always avoided traveling to the US in order to avoid possible arrest.
