Football Kenya Federation President, Sam Nyamweya, and his biggest challenger for the top seat, Nick Mwendwa have both been given the green light to contest for the upcoming elections.
Nyamweya presented his nomination papers, Wednesday (Nov. 25), to the FKF Electoral Board and was cleared to seek another term in office. Nyamweya promised to only go for one term ‘and then after do other things’ should he be entrusted with the mandate once again. He also pledged to ‘clean up the sport and make sure sponsors come on board’ should he be re-elected.
His clearance by the FKF Elections Board comes just a day after Nick Mwendwa was also cleared alongside his running mate, Dorris Petra, a former confidant of Nyamweya.
However, former Gor Mahia and Nairobi City Stars forward, Ken Oliech, opted out of the presidential race in favor of a seat in the National Executive Committee, Nairobi.
