Football Kenya Federation (FKF) presented his papers to Electoral Board as he sets to defend his position as the federation’s president ahead of repeat elections.
Mwendwa insisted he was confident of triumphing in the polls slated for next month even if the “exercise is repeated 10 times.”
The repeat polls were cancelled by Sports Disputes Tribunal (SDT) over irregularities in the Electoral Board and a lack of public participation in the exercise.
But all his opponents namely Sam Nyamweya, Lordvick Aduda and Sam Mburu kept off.
His nomination papers suggested he had been endorsed by all the 20 FKF branches countrywide, which if approved by the Electoral Board, would mean any other interested candidate has been locked out of the race by the virtue of a lack of endorsement from atleast five branches as is required by the FKF election laws.
Besides, Mwendwa was endorsed by 12 of the 18 Kenyan Premier league clubs. He also submitted a certificate of good conduct from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations plus a clearance from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission.
