Speaking at a meeting with corporate sponsors, Namwamba highlighted the government’s responsibility to safeguard the interests of all sports in Kenya.

Namwamba stated, “We expect FKF to proceed with their polls this year.
We advise ensuring that the polls align with the law, and it’s not just FKF; all other sports bodies must adhere to the laws of the land in conducting their business.”
In a meeting held earlier this month, FKF’s National Executive Committee (NEC) announced that the 2024 elections would follow the FKF Electoral Code (2020), the same code used in the previous elections in 2020.
The NEC emphasized that this decision aimed to maintain consistency and transparency in the electoral process.
Barry Otieno, FKF Chief Executive Officer, signed a statement on January 6, 2024, expressing the federation’s commitment to prudent governance and football growth in Kenya.
The statement outlined the use of the FKF Electoral Code (2020) for the upcoming elections, promoting consistency and transparency.
The NEC also resolved that the Annual General Meeting, set to ratify the FKF Electoral Board and Electoral Code (2020), would take place on March 16 in Nairobi.
