Herbert Mwachiro, the former Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Deputy CEO has entered the race for the federation’s top seat in the forthcoming elections.
In a presser on Tuesday, Mwachiro said ‘his decision to run for the top football seat in the country was informed by the desire to transform the football industry to a sustainable sector that will put Kenya where it deserves to be’.
The presser continued: “My focus will not only be on all tiers of club football but also on youth, grassroots and women football. This vision will be achieved through commercial partnerships and partnership with the government that will ensure the smallest units (wards, constituents and counties) contribute to football development.
Mwachiro said he will unveil his team one the elections are called and invited like-minded individuals to back his team as he begins the journey to transform Kenyan football.
It is still unclear when the elections will be held but a series of people have presented themselves in a bid to unseat the incumbent Nick Mwendwa.
Of the people who have shown their interest include, former Cecafa Secretary General Nicholas Musonye, former Vihiga Governor Moses Akaranga and former FKF President Sam Nyamweya.
