KRU battle goes to court

10 February 2015, 14:08

Nairobi - The battle for control of the Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) moved from the boardroom to the courtroom on Tuesday when the Kisumu Senior Magistrate issued an injunction to stop a group of clubs from hosting a special general meeting.

Representatives from Stormers RFU and several others clubs were set to meet on Tuesday to discuss alleged financial impropriety and mismanagement by the KRU’s board.

Gabriel Ouko, acting KRU acting chairman, said in a press release that the meeting was unconstitutional.

“Under the Kenya Rugby Union Constitution, only the Union possesses the powers to issue a notice convening a special general meeting as well as receive and compile a delegate’s list to any general meeting of the union,” he said.

“In addition, the petition as received from Stormers RFC was fatally defective as it did not meet the constitutional requirements for calling for a special general meeting.

“As a board we continue to welcome valid concerns into the management of the game of rugby and are open to engage in a constructive manner in ways we can improve the game of rugby.

“Most importantly as a board we uphold the Union’s constitution and the laws of the land. All affiliates of the Union are called on upon to disregard any attempts at convening them for a special general meeting as it has not been called by the Union.”

Kennedy Wasonga, chairman of Stormers RFC, said on Monday that the meeting would go ahead irrespective of board’s concerns.
