As the country awaits the conclusion of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) elections, it has emerged that the incumbent FKF office has been working to frustrate the process.
The elections, which were initially designed to end by November 13 2015, have been pushed time and again and over two months later, they are yet to conclude.
Just recently, the Sub Branch elections were concluded after a series of postponements and in the run up to the Branch elections, it has emerged that the incumbency has been behind the delay.
The FKF Elections Board has written to FIFA reporting the federation of trying to scuttle the process and in what may turn out to be a rift in the board, five members, who signed the letter to FIFA, accused the board chair Donald Kipkorir of trying to undermine the board.
“We wish to bring to your attention the continued interference by the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) and in particular the Secretary General in the management of the elections, and how it may seriously impact negatively to the scheduled branch elections.
“Esakwa has interfered with the independence of the board on very many occasions, so as to advance the interest of the incumbent President (Sam Nyamweya).
“His long and unnecessary delays in making decisions is frustrating and not progressive; and his dictatorial approach to the board members is disrespectful and geared towards favouring the incumbent,” part of the letter, currently in 366football.com’s possession read.
