The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) elections have taken another twist with the Electoral Board announcing the cancellation of the Branch and National elections following a number of appeals made after the sub branch polls.
The board was set to oversee the elections on Friday 18 December and Tuesday 22 December for the branch and national polls in that order but a letter from the board, signed by the chairman Donald Kipkorir states that they will be put on hold.
While announcing that a new date for the polls will be communicated in the course of next week, the board reiterated its determination to run a free and fair process.
Here’s the communique from the board:
“With great regret, FKF Elections Board announces cancellation of Branch and National Elections scheduled for December 18th and 22nd respectively. The cancellation has been necessitated by the on-going appeals at the FKF Appeals Board, which appeals arise from the recently concluded Sub – Branch Elections.
“We have consistently informed the public that the elections shall be and are free, fair and transparent and giving room to appeals enhances our pledge. We will announce new dates once the appeals period ends early next week,” read the letter.
