The Football Federation of Kenya (FKF) election bid is still rife with aspirants calling for fresh registration of clubs.

FKF Western Branch chairman Andrew Amukowa, who has joined hands with Nicholas Musonye, has called for the registration of all the clubs afresh so as to avoid ghost clubs that may negatively influence the election outcomes.

“All the existing clubs should be allowed to register so as to be counted and that any ghost club that had been lined up should be stopped if we want free and fair exercise,” said Amukowa.

He called upon other like-minded aspirants to back up Nicholas Musonye for he has what it takes to steer FKF.

“We are behind Musonye and this time we are not joking around. He has a clean sheet in the Cecafa body where he has served for years. His experience should be applied in cleaning and strengthening our football federation.

“He has already talked to me and there is good will and so what should be done is meeting other like-minded souls who will throw their weight behind him,”

Other FKF presidential aspirants are Sam Nyamweya, Moses Akaranga, Alex Ole Magwelo, Harun Shivachi and Cosmus Nabongolo.

The Sports Disputes Tribunal (SDT) ruled in March that the Football Kenya Federation has no mandate to run the National Elections, asking the world football governing body (FIFA) to appoint a normalization committee, which will ensure elections are held democratically.

However, FIFA rejected the proposal, a move that has seen Nick Mwendwa remain in office until the elections are held.
