Nick Mwendwa scoffs at SDT ruling

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Nick Mwendwa has stated his dissatisfaction at the Sports Disputes Tribunal ruling made on Tuesday 17th March nullifying the federation’s branch elections and stopping the coming national polls.

The Tribunal chair, John Ohaga also termed the FKF National Executive Committee (NEC) illegal and called on FIFA to form a normalization committee to run football in the country as a solution to the impasse is sought.

Called off

The FKF elections, in which Mwendwa would have proceeded unopposed, along with his deputy, Doris Petra were for the second time called off and in response, Nick said they will only abide by what FIFA directs on the matter.

He hopes FIFA slams the decision by the Tribunal, a decision for which he hinted would come in two days’ time, and hopes the Tribunal will abide by whatever the world football governing body will pass.

“We are a law-abiding federation and we will follow what FIFA says. The Tribunal said they will ask FIFA to advise us on what to do in this matter and we hope the Tribunal will also heed to what FIFA will say.

“As a federation, we do not agree to what the Tribunal ruled but we will continue working hard to see football grow. For our football to grow, the backward mentality of spoiling things has to be dealt with. Our opponents have no football interest at all,” he said.

Stay in office

While the Tribunal called for FIFA’s intervention in the formation of a normalization committee, Nick Mwendwa is set to remain in office and he is expected to play a key role in the route Kenyan football takes from now on. He called for calm, as he assured that all FKF officials will remain available to serve the population.
