Mathews Opwora, an aspirant for the chairmanship position in the AFC Leopards elections has stepped down just days to the Sunday 24 July polls at the Moi International Sports Center (MISC) Kasarani.
Opwora is a co – principal in the club’s Interim Management Committee (IMC) and announced his decision, stating his reason as informed by the desire to unify the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants and declared his support for Maurice Amahwa.
He termed Amahwa a capable leader that can lead the club to new heights and urged his fans to go on and vote for him.
“I have opted out of the race for the good of the club. This may be sad for my supporters and people who have stood with me throughout the race but it was a decision made after much thought about unifying the club. We stand to lose a lot when I split the votes.
“I thus declare my support for Maurice Amahwa, a person I feel has what it takes to not only lead but also unify the club after a very rough patch in the past few months,” he said.
The race for the top seat now has three aspirants, Amahwa, Dan Mule and Robert Asembo.
