Football Kenya Federation presidential aspirant Sammy Sholei has called on Sports cabinet Secretary to form a Normalization Committee.
He says the committee will manage the federation’s affairs as they await for elections that have been nullified twice by the Sports Dispute Tribunal (SDT).
He accused the current president S Nick Mwendwa for ‘gross failure’ at the football body who has deployed ‘delaying tactics’ with elections.
“FIFA rules are crystal clear, they do not tolerate the use of mainstream courts to resolve disputes and otherwise prefer and support a sports arbitration process…It is unfortunate that the current FKF office has anonymously filed cases in three regional courts to block the much celebrated Sports Disputes Tribunal from discussing and or handling any football matters,” read part of Sholei’s statement.
“The important route now is having all stakeholders on board and their voices heard. Football stakeholders include the beans sellers and their hearts are in the sport. They include those who watch on TV, it doesn’t have to be an office holder somewhere…” Sholei said.
Mwendwa also rejected a call by the SDT to moderate a stakeholders forum on the way forward regarding the polls, arguing the mover was outside the tribunal’s mandate
