Kenya Elections:FKF Branches demand for Elections transparency accuse National office of ignoring them

Kenya Elections:FKF Branches demand for Elections transparency accuse National office of ignoring them

By Lorraine Ruto,

Football Kenya Federation(FKF) branches  are demanding the electoral

process for the forthcoming  elections  be  clearly spelt  out in good  time to impact fairness  and transparency.

The branches claimed the Executive had ignored and  swept away all their demands  since the last AGM  held in Nakuru last year.

The branches that met in Nairobi demanded   to know  why  the Federation under the chairmanship of  Sam Nyamweya  have failed  to wire  the annual  Kshs.250,000 to branches .

The amount according to Nyanza  North Chairman Joseph Andere was pledged  to branches in a  previous annual General Meeting(AGM) held
on June 27th 2014 at the Kabarak Guest House in Nakuru.

Friday’s  meeting was attended by 13 branches out of  19  that  met on  the  outskirts  of  Nairobi.Subsequently missing  in the meeting
was a section of  rebel  FKF  National Executive members led by  Tom Alila who  were  expected to   chair the meeting.

Addressing the media,Andere said branches operations  had stalled because the National  office  had failed to  send the money  as agreed
in the Kabarak meeting.

He said  the meeting did not  dwell on any individual involved with money scandal since the person must be given a chance  to defend
himself of any  allegations.

South coast Chairman  Khamisi Mwayoyo told the media that Rift Valley FKF branch had put a  request  for its split to make administration work easier to carry on.

Mwayoyo said members were  also perplexed to hear that  the forthcoming  AGM scheduled for Kisii late  next month  will tackle the issue  of  lifting suspension on some  members.

‘What  have they  done since they were  suspended  to warrant the lifting of their suspension unless somebody has dined with the saidculprits ?he wondered .He said  members  were not against the AGM being held in Kisii noting that  they were  ready for dialogue  with
the Executive.

“We want to approach the forthcoming AGM  with soberness.We want  to develop  our football from the grassroots  and  bring all stakeholders
together. We are ready for dialogue because we  don’t want to spoil or cripple our football that  is  the livelihood of  many stakeholders “ said  Mwayoyo.
