"Membership recruitment is ongoing countrywide and we
urge athletes and all stakeholders to register in large numbers as this comes
with an added advantage when we will be having clinics, competitions and
various fora," said Omedo.
Those participating in the election would also have to
ensure they pay the Sh500 membership fee as that will be a determining factor
in their participation.
Omedo also revealed that the federation has opened a
temporary office at the Weider Shop, Hilton Hotel’s ground floor to co-ordinate
the federation’s affairs.
He named former Mr Kenya Bokassa Onyango as the election
co-ordinator for Mombasa, which will serve other counties in the Coast region.
Others are Steve Wekhule (Siaya), Vincent Otieno and Gaby
Amolo (Kisumu), Sabatia Owiti and Kaqzenge (Eldoret), George Mulama and Malkiat
Singh (Nakuru), Julias Ayata (Migori), George Wando (Bungoma/Kitale), George
Obala (Busia), Dan Otieno (Kajiado) while Mike Otieno will be in charge of
Mumias. Omedo said more branches will be opened in Nyeri and Kajiado.
