Aspiring candidates in the football election are contemplating the revival of the Kenya Football Federation(KFF) should the elections organized by the Football Kenya Federation's Election Board go on as scheduled.
Speaking a day after the electoral board chaired by Edwin Wamukoya confirmed that branch polls will go on in eighteen branches from 9 am this morning,former federation President Sam Nyamweya, former AFC Leopards chairman Alex Ole Magelo, and Steve Mburu said they were disappointed that despite advice from the Sports Registrar, the board was determined to hold the polls.
“We have learnt with dismay of an attempt by Football Kenya Federation to subvert justice and illegally conduct elections on November 23,” opened a statement signed by Magelo, Nyamweya and Mburu.
“In the event that FKF blatantly and with impunity continues with their plans to hold elections against the directive of the Tribunal we shall have no other option but to constitute contempt proceedings against Football Kenya Federation and the individual members of the illegally constituted FKF Electoral Board.”
The statement concluded: “We advise our clubs and supporters to stay away from the purported and illegal election and call upon the government and its agencies to stand up to its call and duty to enforce law and order.”
The trio then warned that they would not hesitate to organize elections via the KFF should the election be held contrary to 'orders' from the registrar.
“KFF is still legally registered at the Attorney General Chambers. We would revive it and hold elections that are in conformity with the Sports Act as well as the FIFA and CAF statutes,” warned Nyamweya in sentiments that were echoed by Magelo and Mburu.
Confronted with the developments yesterday afternoon, FKF President Nick Mwendwa said he was not concerned by the threats adding that he was wholly focused on holding their elections
“We are fully focused on our elections,” Mwendwa said curtly.
The Electoral board on Thursday at their Kandanda house offices gave a final briefing to 36 returning officers who will be in charge of the elections. Two election officials will be in charge of each of the 18 counties holding elections today.
