Athletics Kenya battle heads to Sports Dispute Tribunal

19 December 2014, 13:12

Nairobi - The Milimani High Court has ordered Athletics Kenya's (AK) two opposing factions to file their complaints with the Kenya Sports Dispute Tribunal.

A group of 14 AK branches sought to hold a special general meeting to elect new leadership for the organization, but the group was taken to court by some of AK’s current top officials.

On Thursday High Court Judge Justice Joseph Sergon ordered the parties to take their disagreement to the Sports Dispute Tribunal.

“The applicants are directed to make a formal application for the dispute to be referred to arbitration within a period of 30 days,” the Daily Nation reports Sergon to have said.

“The arbitral proceedings should be conducted expeditiously.”

Sergon ordered that the Tribunal rule on the matter in 90 days of the case being opened.

Paul Mutwii, AK eastern branch chairman and spokesman for the 14 branches, said that they were happy with the result of the court case.

“We are happy that the judge didn’t issue a verdict but referred the case to the arbitration tribunal,” said Mutwii.

“We shall now meet to discuss the next course of action now that the court didn’t stop the SGM.”
