NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 30 – The much-anticipated Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) elections that were scheduled to be held Wednesday evening has been postponed over non-compliance with the Sports Act.
According to the Sports Registrar the polls could not go on after only two affiliates out of 55 namely Administration Police Warriors and KCB RFC have complied with the Sports Act forcing the KRU Board to postpone the elections by two months.
KRU Chairman Oduor Gangla told members that they received a letter from the Sports Registrar stopping the Annual General Meeting because they had not complied with the Sports Act.
“We received a letter yesterday from the Sports Registrar telling us we cannot go on with our AGM because only two clubs have complied with the Sports Act, and according to KRU constitution, we need atleast 10 affiliates to hold the AGM and having not met those conditions I adjourn the meeting until after two months so that we give the clubs time to comply,” Oduor announced.
There were only four seats to be contested for the Vice Chairperson where Peris Mukoko was battling it out with Moses Ndale, the Secretary position that attracted two candidates; Ian Mugambi and Dr. Ochieng Ahaya, the Treasurer’s post that saw Dr. Joshua Aroni go unopposed.
The Directors has attracted three candidates; Charles Chege, Hillary Itela and Oscar Mango.
