OPINION:Are some FKF presidential aspirants sincere in protest over electoral code?

Are some Football Kenya Federation (FKF) presidential contenders sincere about their protest of the electoral code in the fourth-coming national elections?

On the surface some of the protests by certain candidates look justified. However, looked at deeply, it smacks of mischief and a certain fear of the polls.

Among the most contentious requirements is that candidates who want to contest must have served in any capacity for two of the last five years.

Surprisingly, those who have raised protest about the requirement qualify themselves raising questions as to their motive.

Do they really want elections in the first place or are they scared of losing?

Herbert Mwachiro is a former FKF Deputy Secretary General and is one of the presidential contenders in this year’s elections. but

surprisingly, Mwachiro has dismissed the requirement even though he is not barred considering that it is less than three years since he left FKF and therefore qualifies to contest.

So, one wonders, why does Mwachiro have a problem with this requirement? Or he is simply scared of the forth-coming elections as he does not have support on the ground.

Former FKF chairman Sam Nyamweya has been in the forefront of dismissing the newly released electoral code even though the last elections which he presided over had the same requirements.

Nyamweya also qualifies to contest having been the first chairman of FKF.

Nicholas Musonye who has joined Nyamweya in protesting the rules is a former Council for East and Central Africa Football Association (CECAFA) Secretary General a position he was forced out a few months ago. So, one wonders why he is opposed to these requirements.

As for Aduda, Twaha Mbarak, Alex Ole Magelo, and others, the least needs to be said.

Though they have also been vocal in protesting the requirements, they have no capacity to mount a stab at the top seat in FKF. They are just busybodies not keen on seeing the process end but are glad to cause as much delay as possible. The electoral board should ignore them with the contempt it deserves.
