  • Creating confusion by introducing delegates who do not meet the constitutional threshold will lead to chaos in Kenyan football at a time when an opportunity has been presented to reset football leadership in the country.
  • The Ministry of Sports should be wary of attempts to use the office of the Registrar of Sports to sanitize this process by declaring these County associations and their clubs as being eligible to vote in the forthcoming elections and thereby frustrating the efforts of the football fraternity to effect change in the management of the game.
