- The sports Cabinet Secretary heads to FIFA meeting held in Zurich Switzerland with FKF boss, Tribunal Chair and Sports Registrar.
Amb. Amina Mohamed is considering the issues concerning the sanctity of Kenya’s Constitution 2010 as she heads to FIFA today to make a case for the FKF electoral process that was nullified by the sports dispute tribunal in December 3, 2019.
Rose Wasike who is the sports registrar had stopped FKF from conducting its elections. On a letter dated November 15, 2019, Wasike cited serious violation of the Sports Act 2013 and the Constitution of Kenya.
On December 12, 2019, FIFA’s Governance Services Manager Sarah Solemale visited Nairobi and insisted that elections must be held before the date of exiting office by the current FKF officials is reached.
“FIFA is closely monitoring the situation to ensure the compliance of the SDT decision is done and also within a reasonable amount of time. It is important for FKF to know that at the end of the presidential and the National Executive Committee term, which is to end on February 10, 2020, elections must be held.” Solemale said.
On a letter dated December 13, 2019, FKF requested Amb. Amina to proceed with the election and promised to adhere to the rules and regulation. The letter stated that: “FKF wishes to request your good office to allow the federation start the process of complying with the Sports Act fully, immediately after its elections scheduled for March 28, 2020.”
Currently, the hopes of holding the FKF election will highly depend on CS Amina Mohamed who has to make a decision on whether to defend the FKF request to hold an election or join the FIFA officials in fighting the FKF incompetency to hold free and fair elections. In a nutshell, integrity must always be at the forefront regardless of the characters involved.
