Football Kenya Federation presidential candidate Omondi Aduda has asked incumbent Nick Mwendwa to stop using Fifa as an excuse to extend his “illegal stay in the office.”
Mwendwa is under immense pressure for alleged fund misappropriation as well as disregarding Kenyan institutions as well as the FKF constitution.
A couple of days ago, the vocal administrator openly told off the Sports Disputes Tribunal Chairman John Ohaga, saying the federation is answerable to Fifa only and will do as they advise.
“He should stop hiding under the wings of Fifa to continue staying in office illegally. Fifa is registered under the Swiss laws and upholds them to the letter,” The Gor Mahia CEO is quoted by The Star.
“FKF is also registered under the Sports Act and should respect the laws of the land first and respect the institutions put in place to govern sports.
“The FKF constitution says that his mandate expired in February but he deliberately failed to organize free and fair elections just to stay in office longer.
“He has since been cornered and he continues to hide under Fifa. However, I wish to remind him that he must adhere to both the Kenyan laws and FKF constitution just as he has done with Fifa.”
The administrator has challenged Mwendwa to make use of the Covid-19 situation to set the record straight regarding the Kenyan Premier League -which he insists will be fully under the federation, as well as clearing the mess he has caused regarding elections.
“He should use the break we have to right the many wrongs he has done touching on the polls.
“We should use technology and conduct the exercise before the new season begins.
“I have heard him say he doesn’t want to renew KPL’s contract but he is not telling clubs who will manage the competition, the criteria he will use to give them the contract, how much clubs will get and other details.”
