In declaring his intention to challenge for the FKF presidency Friday, Musonye, who formerly served as the Secretary General of Cecafa, said he was pushed by stakeholders to come rescue Kenyan football.
Before leaving Cecafa last year, the 55-year-old former journalist with the Nation Media Group, announced he would vie for Kakamega County governorship come 2022 general elections.
Khalwale on the other hand constested the same post in 2017, losing to incumbent Governor Wycliffe Oparanya and is known to be angling for a second stab.
FKF elections are still doubtful after two previous attempts were annuled by Sports Dispute Tribunal.
The tribunal chairman John Ohaga is expected to give further directions on 21 May.
