According to the TFF Information Officer, Boniface Wambura, those who lodged their appeals to the committee, which is under the Chairmanship of Idd Mtiginjola, include seven aspirants of various posts whose names were cut off from the race by Deogratius Lyatto's led Election Committee.

The appellant include Omari Nkwarulo who was eyeing the Chairman post and Michael Wambura was seeking the Vice-Chairman position. Other complainants are those who were eyeing for the Executive Committee membership posts, representing different zones.

They are Farid Nahdi (Morogoro and Coast Regions), Mbasha Matutu (Shinyanga and Simiyu), Omari Isack Abdulkadir (Dar es Salaam), Eliud Peter Mvella (Iringa and Mbeya) and Shaffih Kajuna Dauda (Dar es Salaam).

Agape Fue's appeal against Jamal Malinzi clearance to contest for the post of Chairman as well as that of Medard Justinian, who is against Athumani Nyamlani for the same post, will also be heard. Another appeal that will be determined is that which has been filed by Frank Mchaki, who is protesting the Election Committee decision to omit Hamad Yahya for the post of TPL Board Chairmanship post. Wambura said the committee will meet tomorrow to hear the appeals.
