Retired Colonel Nashon Randiek is set to be the president of the Kenya Hockey Union (KHU) for the next four years after being re-elected by delegates at the Kenya Hockey Union National Elections held on Saturday January 13th 2018 at the Parklands Sports Club in Nairobi.
The elections were finally held after a long wait, having initially been scheduled for October 28 but were postponed due to the Africa Cup of Nations which were held In Ismailia, Egypt from October 22-29. They were then pushed to December 16 only to be adjourned to allow affiliates time to hold their elections.
Randiek will now serve a second consecutive term after beating his opponent Inderjit Singh Matharu by twelve votes to five. Elynah Sifuna Shiveka also retained the deputy president seat after garnering eleven votes against Doreen Otieno’s five, with Michael Malungu securing the other Deputy president position.
In the Secretary General’s battle, Wycliffe Ongori Momanyi carried the day with twelve votes as his challenger Tom Olal managed five. Ongori will be deputized by Priscillah Jean Luis, who came in unopposed following the withdrawal of Jackline Okumu.
Godfrey Bila will be the Union’s treasurer as Farhat Khan serves as his deputy, with Leonard Mutuku and Jane Nyamogo securing the Public Relations Officer and Match & Fixtures Secretary posts respectively.
Annual General Meeting
Apart from conducting elections, the delegates discussed other issues in the meeting. Issues discussed are however not clear as the media were denied any form of access to the AGM.
