0 247

In a Special General Meeting held in Nairobi at Riadha House Athletics Kenya (AK) has announced that it will hold its national elections in May.

According to the AK officials the electoral process will start on April 27 at the ward level.

The AK sub-county and county level elections will be held on May 2 and May 6 respectively with Regionals going to the polls on May 9.

AK has 16 regions that include four institutions; Kenya Defence Forces, Kenya Police Service, Kenya Prisons Service and Universities.

The process at the national level will see delegates electing a secretary general and the deputy, posts that were scrapped during the previous 2013 elections.

The non-elective post of the chief executive officer will cease in the new dispensation and instead the position of administrative secretary will been created.

The previous holder Isaac Mwangi was suspended by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) over corruption.

The rest of the positions will remain at the national elections, where the elected president will have four deputies that must include one woman.

Retired General Jackson Tuwei will be seeking to retain his position as president.

Tuwei, who was then one of the four vice presidents, was appointed by the executive in December 2015 to replace the late Isaiah Kiplagat, who had been suspended by the IAAF alongside two other officials over doping cover up and corruption.

The other officials were vice-president David Okeyo and former AK treasurer Joseph Kinyua whose cases are still with the IAAF.
