Football Kenya Federation chairman Nick Mwendwa has faulted the Sports Disputes Tribunal for annulling elections.
Seeking his second term, Mwendwa revealed that the federation will be awaiting FIFA’s directive in light of the SDT ruling made on Tuesday after SDT chairman John Ohaga nullified the county elections held on Saturday.
Ohaga sought to allay Mwendwa’s fears of the possibility of a decision interfering with the elections attracting a possible ban by FIFA suggesting that those concerns may have been somewhat mitigated by the coronavirus and its effect and impact on sporting activities globally.
“Hopefully, the football community can use this COVID-19 imposed hiatus to rectify the defects that the Tribunal has identified in the electoral process and to close ranks so that Kenya can emerge from this period of isolation as a stronger footballing nation with better governance structures and leaders who are accepted as legitimate by the entire football family,” Ohaga said.
FIFA is in the next two days set to make a decision on the matter after going through the Tribunal ruling.
