Former Football Kenya Federation (FKF) vice chairman, Sammy Tiyoi Shollei, has moved to court seeking to have the FKF elections held in January, 2016 nullified and its officials stopped from engaging in any activity on behalf of the federation.

The former international claimed that at the time the elections were conducted there were no officials of FKF to conduct the elections.

Shollei further accuses FKF President, Nick Mwendwa, for illegally obtaining funds from FIFA, sponsors and donors through the Ministry of Sports against public interest and policy.

In a petition filed in court, Shollei together with former footballer Mahmoud Abbas Ahmed argue that the elections were incompetent and bad at law on grounds that FKF had not complied with the Sports Act 2013.

They want the court to direct the Sports registrar to stop recognizing FKF, just two weeks after a Nairobi-based sports firm, Extreme Sports Limited, filed a legal suit against Mwendwa and FKF CEO, Robert Muthomi, at the High Court, following their decision to impose a six-year ban on match officials and administrators managing the grassroots leagues under the firm’s management.

“FKF was and has continued to be an unlawful sports organization. The purported elections conducted on 10th January 2016 to determine the officials of FKF were a sham, null and void,” they argue.

Nick Mwendwa, Robert Muthomi and Football Kenya Federation have been named as respondents in the case.
