FKF elections: Alamin to challenge Appeals Committee ruling
- Alamin won the tightly contested election held at Shanzu Teachers College garnering 17 votes to Kazungu 16 with two votes being rejected by the electoral board.
Newly elected Football Kenya Federation Mombasa Chairman Alamin Ahmed has vowed to reject the Appeals Committee ruling which gave his close competitor Lilian Kazungu the victory following last month’s hotly contested elections.
Speaking after the ruling, Alamin who doubles up as Congo United chairman said the Appeals Committee went against the electoral board by validating rejected votes hence handing Kazungu victory.
“I don’t understand which criteria they have used to change the electoral board decision,”a visibly dissapointed Alamin said.
He added, “Where on earth have you seen a rejected vote counted and they call themselves professionals.”
He has now threatened to lodge an appeal with the world soccer governing body FIFA should his certificate be annulled, adding that other options include organizing a parallel league.
“We are meeting with other stakeholders to discuss our way forward but FIFA is our next option and if it won’t work we will run our own league,” he explained.
Alamin won the tightly contested election held at Shanzu Teachers College garnering 17 votes to Kazungu 16 with two votes being rejected by the electoral board.
Kazungu laid claim for the rejected votes to the electoral board before forwarding it to the appeal committee which overturned the results.
Mombasa County has also witnessed another wing of a parallel office with the formation of Mombasa County Football Association under the former chairman Goshi Juma Ally.
The final list of the new office bearers in the counties where elections were held was to be published by October 1 but it is yet to be done.
