It is now confirmed that the National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK) will hold its elections on Friday September 29,2017.
The date was agreed upon following a meeting on Tuesday that was chaired by current chairman Kipchoge Keino. The said elections were initially scheduled for May 5 but had to be adjourned after Kenya Taekwondo Association filed an injunction at the High Court for being omitted from participating.
20 federations will however now take part in the upcoming elections including those who had been barred such as Kenya Taekwondo Association, Kenya Cycling Federation and Kenya Badminton Association.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) had set NOCK a deadline of the end of this month for elections to be held, and had even reportedly suspended funding to the committee as a result of the delay in holding the election.
Former marathon world record holder Paul Tergat will be seeking nomination as chairman to replace 77-year-old Kipchoge Keino who has been at the helm since 1999.
