MP to vie for FKF Chairmanship

05 August 2015, 12:40 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Sirisia MP, John Waluke has declared that he will vie for the Federal of Kenya Football (FKF) top seat and warned the incumbent chairman and other aspirants to brace for bruising battles in the elections that will be held in three months time.

Speaking to News24, the ODM MP asked FKF President and his team to prepare to exit from the football body, noting that it is time new people with fresh blood took to the helm of the federation.

''I want to tell my brother Nyamweya to warm up for an exit from the seat and pave way for new blood of leadership to manage the federation. Failure to do that will attract a nasty humiliation that will eject him from throne through the ballot vote," said Waluke in an interview on phone.

Waluke said time for Nyamweya is up and he must be parking his luggage to exit the stage for new generational leadership.

''Don't waste time defending the seat since you will lose it hands down,'' said Waluke who exuded confidence that he will win the seat.

The election fever for the federation has gripped the football family with various candidates declaring their intentions to go for the chairmanship position in the elections that will be held in November.

They include among others, former AFC Leopards chairman and current Nairobi County Government Speaker Alex Ole Magelo, flamboyant Nairobi businessman and philanthropic investor Gor Semelango and  FKF Premier League chairman Nick Mwendwa.

Others also said to be in the race are Kenya National Congress (KNC) presidential candidate Peter Kenneth's running mate Ronnie Osumba, former Gor Mahia and national team ace Ken Oliech, suspended FKF vice chairman Sammy Sholei and Extreme Sports CEO Hussein Mohammed who ran for the post and lost narrowly in 2011.
