Nairobi - All but two of Athletics Kenya's 16 branches are set to convene for a
special general meeting after president Isaiah Kiplagat refused their
call to step down.
The 14 branches claim that Kiplagat transgressed the organisation’s
constitution by co-opting eight members to the executive committee
instead of five and “protecting” Central Rift branch chairman Abraham
Mutai when he was convicted of breaking another of the constitutions
The branches subsequently called for him to step down and arrange a general meeting.
Jonathan Kosgei, AK Kenya Police Service branch chairman, told the
Daily Nation that Kiplagat has been given more than enough time.

“We gave Kiplagat until October 31 but seemingly, he is not taking
things seriously as usual hence our move to convene an SGM soon as
provided by the Constitution,” Koskei said.
“We have finalized everything and we shall be calling the delegates soon.”
Kiplagat has refused to give into the branches request and says that the request was not made correctly.
