Football Kenya Limited [FKL] holds its Annual General Meeting [AGM] at Nakuru on Saturday July 23 in what is seen as the biblical last supper before the national soccer polls scheduled for August,13 this year.
The AGM will bring close to 100 delegated from all the FKL branches in the country. Delegates started streaming to Nairobi on Thursday July 21 to present their election nomination papers to the FIFA appointed Independent Electoral Board [IEB] before heading to Nakuru on Friday. Top on the agenda will be to strategize on how to win the forthcoming elections.
The meeting is also expected to endorse Mohammed Hatimy as the FKL candidate in the much anticipated polls. The AGM is estimated to cost FKL Kshs 1.5 Million being the costs for delegates’ accommodation, meals, transport and allowances.
The number of legible to vote has been reduced after verification from 4,000 to 747 clubs in the country which play active football across both Kenya Football Federation (KFF) and FKL leagues.
The legible clubs that have been short listed were issued with certificates by the IEB. Hatimy faces a modest opposition from Hussein Mohammed ahead of the August 13 polls. Other candidates gunning for the top seat of the chairmanship include Twaha Mbarak and Sam Nyamweya.
