FKF Transition to Counties Postponed as Sholei Declares Presidential Candidacy

The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) says there will be no transition to counties until after the 2015 FKF elections. The move is in line with recommendations by the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA).

A letter signed by FKF Secretary General Michael Esakwa on Wednesday 23/9/2015 sent to the delegates partly reads: “While the decision of our 3rd Annual General Meeting held in Nairobi on Friday, August 28 2015 to transition to the counties is supported by FIFA, the same is not feasible and will be implemented after the 2015 FKF elections.’’

In this regard the National elections scheduled for November 13, 2015 as per structure of the 20 branches and 78 delegates will participate in the voting.

Esakwa’s notice  is based on another letter sent to the  federation today by FIFA Acting Secretary Markuss Kattner which quoted partly: ‘’Under these circumstances, we deem that the amendments to the FKF constitution should be postponed until after the elections. The newly elected leadership will then take charge of the process in close collaboration with FIFA, and CAF. As such the composition of the general assembly convened for the upcoming elections should be compliant with the current statues and in line with the last general assembly held by the FKF.”

The FKF sub branch elections are due for October 29, branch elections for November 5 and national office elections for November 13 this year.

Sholei for President

Meanwhile former FKF vice-chairman Sammy Sholei has declared his desire to vie for Presidency.

Sholei whose three-year suspension was lifted barely two months ago announced his candidature on Tuesday alongside Dan Shikanda who wants to run for the Nairobi Branch Chairmanship position.
