Football Kenya Federation President Sam Nyamweya.
BY SAM ALFAN.
Football Kenya Federation has been allowed to hold its Special General Meeting scheduled to take place tomorrow at Eldoret town. Justice Mumbi Ngugi, said that application filed by three suspended
officials seeking to block the meeting has come too late.
The judge said that 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.
It’s now three years since they suspended from the federation, saying that they have had enough time to solve their dispute.
The judge further said that, the removal of the officials has been ratified twice by the National Governing Council. It has been submitted that even the tribunal which supposed to hear
there disputes is not yet in place, the judge observed.
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 halted to allow them exhaust the dispute resolution mechanism and the appeal before the National Olympics of Kenya.
