NAIROBI (HAN) February 11, 2016 – Public Diplomacy and Regional Stability Initiatives News. Nick Mwendwa is the new Football Kenya Federation President.
The youthful Kariobangi Sharks chairman garnered 50 votes with his closest challenger Ambrose Rachier polling 27.
The responsibility of electing new officials was tasked on the 77 delegates who were cleared to vote by the Electoral Board.
This number was, however, one short of the 78 provided for in the FKF constitution.
The delegates were made up of two officials from each of the 20 FKF branches, a representative from each of the 16 (top flight) Kenyan Premier League clubs, six (second-tier) FKF Premier League clubs, six (third division) National Super League clubs, six (fourth division) FKF National Division One clubs, as well as a representative each from the national associations of players, referees and coaches.
Mwendwa takes over from Sam Nyamweya, who withdrew his candidature minutes before the exercise started.
