Ambrose Rachier, the vanquished Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Presidential contestant is graceful in defeat and has promised to work hand in hand with the newly elected members.
Rachier managed 27 votes as his opponent for the post, Nick Mwendwa polled 50 of the 77 available and in his speech while conceding defeat, he lauded the election process as free and fair.
“What is I saw today was very impressive, a very transparent way of conducting elections and I must commend the IED for a job well done,” he said.
Rachier is also the Gor Mahia FC chairman and the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) chair. He said he will continue dedicating his time for the growth of Kenyan football and is hopeful that the new federation will work hand in hand with the KPL.
“I’m in football for the love of it. I will continue serving in my capacity as the KPL and Gor Mahia Chairman,”
“As far as the KPL is concerned, we consider ourselves to be working in partnership with the FKF and that still stands. We will cooperate with the federation and hope that they, too, respect the Memorandums of Understanding in place and the regulations that have been set,” he said.
