Body builders to hold elections

10 September 2014, 17:02

Nairobi - The Kenya Body Building Federation (KBBF) has instructed all 10 of its affiliates to hold elections before September 20.

KBBF chairman Chris Omedo indicated that the federation had appointed branch coordinators to work closely with the Ministry of Sports to ensure the proceedings get underway before the deadline.

"We can only get to the grassroots by having strong branches at the county level," Omedo said in a statement.

He added that branch elections have been sanctioned by the national office.

"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.
