AFC-FANSNAIROBI, Kenya, June 26 – Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has put AFC Leopards SC on notice ahead of their elections scheduled for Saturday.

In a letter to the club signed by Secretary, Michael Esakwa, FKF is asking the club to forward registered constitution, register of eligible voters, composition of the body mandated to conduct and supervise the elections and rules and regulations governing the exercise.

“The federation is concerned with the preparations and credibility of AFC Leopards elections which we have learned are scheduled to take place on June 29, 2013.

“Due to the urgency of the matter, this information should reach the FKF Secretariat before close of business on Wednesday,” the letter read in part.

“By a copy of this letter, we are advising the Registrar of Societies to be vigilant and ensure credible elections are conducted,” it added.

Leopards have been accused of organising the elections without involving the governing body where the manner which they will be conducted has not been made public.

The club is seeking new office bearers to replace or sustain Executive Members led by outgoing chairman, Alex Ole Magelo, the Speaker of the Nairobi County Assembly who has declared he will not be seeking fresh mandate.

On Monday, the club announced stand-in chairman who was Magelo’s vice, Walter Onyino, had quit following the controversial deal with Zuku that saw Leopards threatened with being expelled from the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) due to conflict with their broadcast partners, SuperSport.

The club will continue playing in KPL after the club opted out of the agreement that would have seen the introduction of Ingwe TV on a Zuku platform.

Meanwhile, FKF will hold their Annual General Meeting on Friday at Kenya School of Monetary Studies.
