FKF AGM aborted, Nyamweya cites ‘insecurity’


NYAMWEYA-NOCKNAIROBI, June 26 – The third Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Annual General Meeting that was scheduled to be held on Friday in Kisii has been postponed indefinitely.

Federation president, Sam Nyamweya cited insecurity, bloated number of delegates as the reason to shelve the anticipated assembly despite heavy presence of armed police officers.

Confusion was the order of the day after Nyamweya ordered all delegates to be vetted claiming some of them had hired goons to disrupt the meeting that was scheduled to kick-off at 9am in Ogembo, Nyamira County.

Nyamweya said the new date and venue for the AGM will be decided by NEC members in the next seven days.

In a rejoinder, OCPD Nyamira County, Richard Muigai dismissed claims that security was limited.

“Proper mechanism was put in place to facilitate peaceful event. There were enough personnel from the National Police Service,” Muigai said.

The assembly was set to decide the fate of banned NEC members, Coast chairman, Hussein Terry and his Nairobi counterpart, Daniel Shikanda as well as roll out the roadmap for the upcoming election in October where Nyamweya will be seeking re-election.

Terry was expelled for life while Shikanda is serving a six month ban.

Reports indicate NEC meet on Thursday and passed a proposal to reduce the bans to three years.

48 delegates out of 78 were present in the aborted meeting.

on their part, clubs and branches announced they will form a six man team who will facilitate in calling of a Special General Meeting with the date and venue set to be known on Monday.
