- Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Presidential aspirant Twaha Mbarak has blast incumbent Nick Mwendwa for what he termed as misleading the public, misusing desperate branch candidates and threatening those with an open mind.
The Mombasa-based administrator has also accused the incumbent of the cases he presents to the court and went on to state stakeholders derailed the election process.
“The former FKF president Nick Mwendwa has consistently misled the public that stakeholders have derailed the FKF elections by taking the matters to court while in essence, he is the one who keeps on taking the matters to the Sports Dispute Tribunal (SDT) in an attempt to gag innocent and sincere public servants such as the registrar Madam Rose Wasike and push her to break the laws of the land and threatening her with Fifa ban which is a total misconception of the reality of things,” Twaha said.
The candidate has also accused the incumbent of taking advantage of desperate former FKF branch officials seeking re-election and threatening them.
“Mwendwa is taking advantage of ignorant and desperate former FKF branch officials who failed to deliver on their mandates and fear defeat in the forthcoming elections; by sponsoring them to take football matters to ordinary courts,” Twaha stated.
“He threatened to drop them from his line-up of the so-called ‘Team Blue’ if they fail to obey his illegal orders,” he added.
The FKF boss has also been accused of overstepping his mandate and trying to force everybody to be on his side and even sponsoring other desperate officials.
Meanwhile, Football Kenya Federation (FKF) presidential hopeful Lordvick Aduda is unhappy with the double standards applied by Fifa concerning legal challenges in its member federations.
Aduda’s concerns come after Fifa President Gianni Infantino has agreed to subject himself to a criminal investigation under the Swiss law and Fifa’s announcement that Infantino will remain at the helm even as prosecutors in Switzerland launched legal proceedings against him.
“Infantino is being indicted under the Swiss law and he has accepted it,” Gor CEO said.
“If the Fifa president has accepted it (the probe) then we should not hide behind Fifa when national laws come for you,” Aduda opined.
