The Football Kenya Federation FKF electoral Board has finally announced new elections dates after weeks of a long wait and postponements of the polls.

The elections which were initially scheduled for December 22, 2015, were called off due to appeals from some sub-branch officials following an exercise that was marred by controversy.

According to the statement made on Tuesday by the electoral Board chaired by lawyer Donald Kipkorir, Branch elections will be held on 26th January with National polls set for February 10th.

Delegates at the Branch level will vote for eight officials who include Chairman, Secretary General, Treasurer, Women and Youth representatives.

Lack of the elections dates had caused anxiety among many football faithful, with some presidential hopeful categorically calling for the FKF incumbent Sam Nyamweya to step aside.

Nyamweya will battle FKF chairman, Nick Mwendwa, Gor Mahia and KPL chairman Ambrose Rachier, Businessman Gor Semelang’o, former FKF vice president, Sammy Shollei and Ssemi Aina for the top seat.
