- Former Football Kenya Federation (FKF) chair Sam Nyamweya has urged stakeholders to hold talks and come up with solutions to the current election that seems to be in a dead-end.
Nyamweya who is eyeing a return to his old job at Kandanda House is in the frontline advocating for a fair electoral process. His demand for the stakeholders to ensure credibility has been backed up by his fellow aspirant Herbert Mwachiro.
Sports Disputes Tribunal (SDT) has nullified FKF polls twice in the past seven months. in all the occasions, the SDT chairman John Ohaga ruled that the process did not meet the threshold of a free and fair process.
“It is worth noting the SDT called for all-inclusive stakeholders meeting to deliberate and come up with a way to forward to holding the elections,” said Nyamweya.
“Nothing short of a free, fair, and transp[arent all-inclusive election will resolve the FKF Electoral impasse. This, therefore, means a new voter register has to be developed and agreed upon by all the parties to the elections.” He added.
Mwachiro pointed out that FKF management lead by Mwendwa has been long overdue. The aspirant stated in a signed statement that: “It is disappointing to note that over the last year football in Kenya has been run in a manner that goes completely against all principles of fair play,”
“FKF members must act swiftly to save Kenyan football by calling a Special General Assembly and appoint an interim committee to oversight the election process of Kenyan football immediately. It is clear beyond reasonable doubt that without the National Executive Committee (NEC) in office, football operations are limited.” Mwachiro’s statement added.
The FKF aspirations await the proposal by world football governing body Fifa which is expected to be delivered this week entailing the guidelines on how to conduct the upcoming elections.
