Football Kenya Federation President Sam Nyamweya.
BY SAM ALFAN.
SUSPENDED officials of Football Kenya Federation failed to secure an order to halt the organization’s special general meeting scheduled to take place on Friday 26.
Justice Mumbi Ngugi declined to issue the order to stop the meeting but instead directed the application be served upon the FKF and the matter be listed for hearing tomorrow inter parties.
The judge further directed that FKF file its replying affidavit to the application before the petition is heard.
The former officials Sammy Tiyoi Sholei, Dr Dan Shikanda and Hussein Swaleh Hussein were suspended by the federation President Sam Nyamweya on 2 July 2012 for misconduct.
Sholei was barred for a period of six years from participating in football related activities, after he and two colleagues challenged FKF from ratifying the constitution for the federation.
The special general meeting is meant to fill the vacant position of Vice Chairman which was held by Mr Shollei while Mr Shikanda was relieved the position of national executive committee representing Nairobi region and Hussein had been elected on behalf of the Coast Province.
The trio moved court under certificate of urgency seeking order to stop the meeting alleging that they were not given opportunity to defend themselves after the suspension from FKF.
The federation issued a notice of 8 September 2014 for the SGM to be held on Eldoret with sole agenda of filling the position previously held by the applicants.
They want the meeting haled to allow them exhaust the dispute resolution mechanism and the appeal before the National Olympics of Kenya.
