Former Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president Sam Nyamweya has made a plea for stakeholders with pending court cases to withdraw them, emphasizing the importance of facilitating smooth electoral processes amid fears of FIFA sanctions.

The cancellation of FKF’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), scheduled for Saturday, March 16, due to a court order obtained by sports journalist Milton Nyakundi, has raised concerns about the federation’s election plans later this year.

The Mombasa High Court’s decision to suspend the AGM until the hearing of the petition on Monday, March 19, has cast uncertainty over the October elections.

Nyamweya, in a signed statement, urged all football stakeholders to withdraw the legal challenges in order to pave the way for the resumption of the AGM and election process.

He stressed, “Unending legal challenges in the courts will also attract world football governing body FIFA wrath that may take us back to an indefinite ban.

We cannot afford a suspension from international football because of these wrangles which can be amicably solved.”

Nyamweya highlighted the significance of the upcoming African Nations Championship (CHAN) co-hosted by Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda in September.

He underscored that resolving internal disputes would ensure Kenya’s readiness for this event and the subsequent hosting of the 2027 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Addressing the need for internal resolution of disputes, Nyamweya stated, “Let us allow the AGM and elections to proceed will ensure continuity in FKF’s operations and leadership structure.

An election is critical for democratic decision-making, accountability, and setting strategic directions for Kenyan football.”

He emphasized the importance of transparency, inclusivity, and legitimacy in the federation’s governance and urged stakeholders to uphold these principles by allowing the electoral process to proceed unhindered.

Nyamweya concluded by stressing the need for a smooth transition in leadership to maintain credibility both domestically and internationally, fostering trust among stakeholders.
