Football Kenya Federation (FKF) chairman Sam Nyamweya has urged youths countrywide to take advantage of the remaining few days and register as voters to be able to elect quality leaders.
The FKF boss registered his disappointment at the voter apathy amongst the youths. "I urge the youths to go out and register. Our constitution has the mechanism for national development stretching down to the grass-roots which is in line with our motto of mpira kwa watu slogan," said Nyamweya.
The football supremo further challenged the youth that the only way for them to improve the standard of sports in the country is by registering as voters and electing leaders with the interest of sports.
"The quality of leadership elected into office will be essential for the development of sports in various counties. As such, the youths should go out and vote leaders who will be at the fore front of promoting football and other sports at the grass-roots.
We at FKF will be relying on those leaders to take football to the next level," advised Nyamweya. The FKF boss and his team also had to go through elections which for the first time involved officials of all active clubs in the country unlike previous years where branch officials elected the national officials. The national voter registration ends on Wednesday next week.
