A former long-serving Secretary-General of the Confederation of East and Central Africa Football Association (Cecafa), Nicholas Musonye, has declared interest in the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) presidency in the forthcoming elections.
He will be seeking to unseat the incumbent FKF boss, Nick Mwendwa.
Speaking on NTV’s Mikiki Mikiki show, on Friday, 15th May, Musonye said that he was seeking the position to help restore hope in Kenyan football by working closely with the government to strengthen sports.
“The call to contest the position has come from the stakeholders. I will not let them down. If given the mandate, I am going to restore hope in our football. That is my motivation and my desire. I will not fail Kenyans. I will work with the government to strengthen the sport,” he said.
Musonye said that if elected, his first priority would be to work on youth development and governance.
The 55-year-old former sports journalist served Cecafa for 20-years until his resignation last year.
He joins former FKF chairman Sam Nyamweya, former FKF vice-chair Twaha Mbarak, former Vihiga County Governor Moses Akaranga, former AFC Leopards chairman Alex Ole Magello and Gor Mahia FC Secretary- General Omondi Aduda, who have all declared interest in the position.
