Nick Mwendwa has been re-elected as Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president and is now set to serve for a second four year term.
Mwendwa, who was favorite to win was resoundingly re-elected by football delegates Saturday at the federation’s elective Special General Meeting (SGM) at the Safari Park hotel, in Nairobi.

Herbert Mwachiro was third with three votes while Bonface Osano and Dan Mule did not get a single vote.
The election took place after the Sports Disputes Tribunal (SDT) dismissed a petition on Friday to call off the elections until grievances were heard and determined.
Speaking after his huge victory, Mwendwa thanked his team for the success.
“I want to thank our legal team for the hard work. The next phase will be better than the one that has gone,” he said. .
In other results, Margaret Omondi was elected NEC women representative following the slimmest 43-42 victory over Kerubo Momanyi while Micheal Ouma will take charge in the Nairobi Region after an easy 59-25 win over Tom Alila.
“We are proud of our work. The push and pull in the run up to the elections was healthy and I can assure you this process was free, fair and transparent,” the Electoral Board chairperson Kentice Tikolo added.
