Hussein blasts Hatimy in Mombasa


NAIROBI, Kenya, July 24- Football Kenya chairmanship contender, Hussein Mohammed completed up his tour of Coast Province with a call to his rival Mohammed Hatimy to step down.

Hatimy, who is the chair of Football Kenya Limited that will be de-registered upon the August 13 elections, is seeking to extend his tenure at the rudder of the country’s football management.

Other candidates include Kenya Football Federation boss, Sam Nyamweya, his deputy Twaha Mubarak and Gor Mahia chairman, Ambrose Rachier who threw his hat to the ring formally on Friday.

“The destiny of football is on your hands. Vote wisely and do not recycle failures,” Hussein said in Mombasa where he addressed 115 clubs on Saturday.

Hussein who accused his FKL opponent of running down the country’s football in the last 15 years he has been at the helm had earlier toured Malindi where he received endorsement from the region’s clubs to gun for the top seat.

Hatimy on the other hand toured Nakuru where he also received the support for his bid.

Hussein was accompanied by his running mate Sammy Sholei, Athanas Obala and Bashir Mohammed and who are the national and Coast co-ordinators for his campaign.

The deadline for all contenders for the top seat to forward their papers to the Interim Election Board is on Monday.
