Kenyan Nick Mwendwa is reappointed for a second term as head of the Kenyan Football Federation (FKF). He was re-elected on 17 October 2020.
The businessman and outgoing president did not have any real challengers on the other side. He won 77 votes out of 87 delegates, an unequivocal victory and no stake. Lordvick Aduda, 5 votes and Herbert Mwachiro, 3 votes. Journalist Bonface Osano and Daniel Mule won no votes.
The President of CAF, the African Football Confederation, welcomed this re-election, “This second term, which you won by an impressive majority, is a demonstration that your entire mandate has been appreciated and strongly supported. I encourage you on this path of success, which reflects the prestigious ambition of the Kenyan nation that has made sport a national priority,” he said.
Now the powerful Nick Mwendwa has other priorities in his sights. He dreams of a seat on the FIFA Council, the International Football Federation. “I will be vying for one of two spots for English-speaking countries on the FIFA Council. I will be partnering with Cosafa and Cecafa to seek their support for the position.”
