Gor Mahia as­pi­rants up in arms over polls de­ci­sions

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports Local - BY FRAN­CIS WADEGU /

Can­di­dates for var­i­ous po­si­tions in the Gor Mahia elec­tions have ex­pressed their dis­sat­is­fac­tion in re­gard to the sin­gu­lar an­nounce­ment by the cur­rent of­fice that elec­tions will be held in De­cem­ber 11 with­out their con­sul­ta­tion.

The can­di­dates among them Chris Omondi, who was elected chair­man in the last polls but opted out of of­fice as well as chair­man­ship as­pi­rant Dan Oketch, said sev­eral is­sues have arisen since the elec­tion date was set and do not augur well with the fans, as­pi­rants and other stake­hold­ers.

“We wish to con­demn in the strong­est terms pos­si­ble the man­ner in which the in­cum­bent of- fice has been han­dling this is­sue. First, ques­tions have been raised on the in­de­pen­dence and fair­ness of the body called ‘IFEOS’ that was ap­pointed to un­der­take this whole process of reg­is­tra­tion of vot­ers. “The fact that this se­lec­tion was done in se­cret makes it even more sus­pi­cious,” charged a state­ment signed by ten as­pi­rants, who in­cluded Omondi and Oketch as well as Kevin Odhiambo, Mo­gaka Jared, Joseph ogidi, Sally Bolo, Tom Odongo, Nje­ria Chito and Ju­dith Anyango.

The can­di­dates won­dered whether the on­line reg­is­tra­tion pro­ce­dure al­legedly be­ing un­der­taken had fol­lowed the re­quire­ments of the club’s con­sti­tu­tion and the Sports Act.
