Former Nyanza National Executive Committee member Tom Alila has called on Football Stakeholders to honor and respect the Sports Act saying that the document was introduced to streamline sporting activities in the Country.
Last week Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa accused Sports Dispute Tribunal Chairman John Ohaga of meddling in football affairs saying that he is overstepping his mandate.
This is after the SDT Chairman called for stakeholders consultative meeting aimed at deliberating a fresh road map towards fresh football elections that had been canceled twice because of irregularities in the way the process was conducted.
Mwendwa accused the Chairman of trying to be both a judge and an arbitrator saying that Ohaga should settle for one role.
Alila who has declared his candidature for a seat in the Federation said that stakeholders should come together to help in developing the game.
“The sports act is embedded in the law of the country and it should be respected,’ he said.
“Stakeholders who run the game are known and should come and unite to help sort out issues affecting the game,” he added.
Alila said that he delivered on the promises he made to football stakeholders in his tenor as the Nyanza representative.
He cites the renovation of the Moi Stadium in Kisumu as well as the promotion of Muhoroni to the Kenyan Premier League as one of his achievements during his time in office.
“Before I was elected, I promised the people of Nyanza that Moi Stadium will be renovated and that the region will have more teams playing in the Kenyan Premier League ” he concluded.
