Athletics Kenya branches plan to oust Kiplagat

29 October 2014, 15:08

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 law.

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.
