The Kenya Judo Association annual general meeting failed to take off over the weekend after chairman Stephen Arap Soi obtained a court order halting the meeting.
Soi said the meeting contravened the association constitution since the term of the current office bearers expires on November 21. The meeting had taken off at the Kenya National Sports Council (KNSC) boardroom before Soi showed up with lawyer William Kipkorir of Arusei and Company Advocates who served the officials with the court order.
The temporary injunction sought to restrain the KJA vice chairman Mwangi Mbutu secretary general Shadrack Maluki and sports director Johnson Mwadime from conducting, convening, officiating or presiding in any matter concerning a KJA agm. It also set November 29 as the hearing date for Soi's application served under certificate of urgency. A feud has been brewing at the federation as succession politics take centre stage.
