The Football Kenya Federation Electoral Board was on Monday morning unveiled at the organization’s headquarters at Kandanda House, Kasarani.
The board comprises five members and will be led by communication specialist Kentice Tikolo. Others on the board include lawyer Patrick Matthew Onyango, veteran journalist Ali Hassan Kauleni, Alfred Ndinya, and Jawuor and Samuel Karanja.
Further, the board will have three standing members namely Racheal Muthoga, Elaine Mbugua, and Andrew Mudibo.
The names were unanimously approved during the FKF Special General Assembly, which took place last week Tuesday in Nairobi.
The polls, which were postponed last year due to the Sports Disputes Tribunal (SDT) ruling, which faulted the composition of the electoral board, are scheduled for the end of next month.
“Our first assignment will be a creation of the electoral calendar which will be out by 7th February, the elections will be done by 30th march as per Fifa timeline,” Kentice said.
On his part Barry Otieno, the FKF Chief Executive Officer (CEO), who precided over the unveiling reiterated the government’s commitment to see the process through.
“We have sat down with the sports Cabinet Secretary in the ministry of sports (Amina Mohammed) and we came up with a solution to our problem locally, that’s why we didn’t go to Fifa, we have all the blessings from the ministry and government to go ahead.”
