KHU national elections set for Saturday

  • The elections were due in January this year when the current administration’s four-year mandate lapsed on January 17
  • But the Sports Council allowed for them to extend that term for the compelling reason that during that time officials were involved in the Africa Cup of Nations (CAN) in Accra, Ghana where Kenya had two national teams

The long-awaited Kenya Hockey Union (KHU) national elections will be held on Saturday at the federation headquarters in Nairobi, union president Nashon Randiek has confirmed.

The polls were set for April 16 but were moved one week due to the Easter holidays but might yet be postponed again if the sports registrar will not be satisfied with county registrations.

Counties should register in order to have delegates participate in the vote.

The elections were due in January this year when the current administration’s four-year mandate lapsed on January 17.

But the Sports Council allowed for them to extend that term for the compelling reason that during that time officials were involved in the Africa Cup of Nations (CAN) in Accra, Ghana where Kenya had two national teams.

The six affiliated counties (Kakamega, Nairobi, Nakuru, Mombasa, Kisumu and Kiambu) were allowed to conduct their elections before the league began in March.

According to a source, there might be no changes on the current office setup come Saturday, since no one has expressed interest in challenging the incumbents in any of the 10 elective posts.

The last elections were held on 13th January 2018.

Pressure has been mounting on the current office with current and former players complaining of unfriendly management.
