Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Presidential aspirant Tom Alila has threatened to take legal action against the federation if they fail to issue notice and roadmap for the elections.
The federation is scheduled to hold elections in February 2024, but according to Alila, they are still in the dark because FKF have not convened an Annual General Meeting (AGM) to discuss the same.
Alila insists the time is running out and FKF should as a matter of urgency give the roadmap for the eagerly awaited exercise.
“We want the notice for the FKF AGM to be done before the end of December and the roadmap for elections released without fail we also want elections to be all-inclusive, and if the notice is not out by December, we will seek legal redress because the federation is currently operating illegally, they have turned back on their own constitution,” Alila told Africa Top Sports.
He added: “They (FKF) have never held an AGM for the last two years and they will be disbanded if they don’t convene for the same.”
Alila further stated that FKF should focus on an all-inclusive election adding County Football Association must be allowed to participate in the polls because they are legal entities. “County Associations must be admitted into FKF so that a clear roadmap for elections is out because they are now legal, and should be included in the agenda,” said Alila, adding: “Nobody should be left behind, we want everybody on board, there (FKF) time has ended and we are waiting for the SDT ruling on December 7 to clarify the term limit.”
Alila went further to ask current FKF President Nick Mwendwa to stop lying to Kenyans that he will be going for another term by stating: “Mwendwa’s term of office has come to an end; he has already served two terms and will not be eligible to vie again.
“So he should stop lying to Kenyans that he will be contesting again, the constitution will not allow him, he should leave Kenyan football in peace, we have suffered during his reign, our football has gone to the dogs and we don’t want to hear anything to do with him.”
Apart from Alila, others, who have shown interest in contesting for the top seat include Sam Nyamweya, Sam Ochola, Omondi Auda, Hussein Mohammed, and Nicholas Musonye.
