National Executive Committee paves way for FKF elections

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) elections will be held this year.

This is after the Saturday’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting held at the Goal Project office in Kasarani, Nairobi.

NEC resolved that the upcoming elections will be conducted using the controversial FKF Electoral Code (2020) which will be rectified during the Annual General Meeting slated for March 16, 2024. The development has generated mixed reactions from football stakeholders across the country.
“The National Executive Committee of the Football Kenya Federation met today and unanimously passed several important resolutions that will shape Kenyan football in 2024,” read part of the statement signed by FKF Secretary General Barry Otieno.
The meeting laid down a road map for the elections which has already attracted interest from former FKF president Sam Nyamweya, Extreme Sports CEO Hussein Mohammed, former Harambee Stars midfielders Sammy Owino ‘Kempes’ and McDonald Mariga, Gor Mahia Secretary General Sam Ocholla and former Nyanza NEC member Tom Alila. But all of them must be ready to face stiff competition from the incumbent Nick Mwendwa, who is serving his second term if he decides to defend his seat.

As confirmed by Sports Cabinet Secretary Ababu Namwamba to Parliament in September last year, the national elections are slated for February this year with the presidency post which has attracted heavy weights and intense lobbying is expected to be hotly contested. However, the meeting was set to precide to which direction Kenya’s Football will take.
