- Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Presidential aspirant Sam Nyamweya vows to make sure justice is served to Kenyans by ousting the current regime, blasted FKF Nick Mwendwa of using the courts in the country to extend their stay in office.
Mombasa High Court handed FKF a reprieve in On Tuesday, barred the Sports Disputes Tribunal (SDT) from entertaining any proceedings against the Federation until a petition before it is mentioned on June 29.
The petitioners Gabriel Mghendi and Lilian Nadundu both FKF Coast National Executive Committee Members, as the first and second petitioners respectively are set to file their submissions on June 19 with the first interested party FKF ordered to file their submissions by June 25.
Irked Nyamweya, who has shown a keen interest to unseat Mwendwa from the top position when elections are held, has maintained they will not be affected by the many court cases filed by the Federation and will fight to make sure justice is served to Kenyans.
“Whatever Nick Mwendwa and his cronies do, it does not matter how many courts they will go to on this land, they will never escape from the justice and it does not matter, they can go to 15 or 20 courts but we will not leave them and even those courts will not help them,” Nyamweya said.
He accused the current regime that they want to cling onto power to cover their bad deeds, warning them that it does not matter where they go, justice will follow them.
“We very well know they want to cling onto power to hide many of their bad deeds, but Kenyans and football stakeholders will not accept, we will smoke them out, we will go to those courts, wherever they go, they have filed more than five cases, and we will follow them there,” he added.
“They will never hide away from the truth and justice must be done to Kenyans to regain their football, and elections will be done, a free and fair exercise, let them know that from today. We will follow them to Mombasa, even in Wajir, they have been going to court and not us, but their time is running out,” he concluded.
