Paul Tergat elected unopposed as NOCK finally hold elections

There is a new dawn at the National Olympic Committee of Kenya following successful elections that were held on Friday afternoon in Nairobi.

After decades at the helm as Chairman, Kenyan legend Kipchoge Keino has finally been replaced by another former long distance runner Paul Tergat who takes over the mantle of leadership. Tergat was elected unopposed with Kipchoge Keino having already withdrawn from the race prior to the Election Day.

Tergat was unopposed on Election Day after delegates locked out Patrick Muya.

Shadrack Maluki is the new 1st Deputy President having garnered 10 votes against Nahashon Randiek’s 9 votes in a close battle.

Kenya Volleyball Federation chairman Waithaka Kioni got 13 votes to take over the  2nd vice chairman post against  Lt. Gen (Rtd) Jackson Tuwei who garnered 6 votes.

Despite being at the centre of the Rio Olympics mess controversy, Francis Paul was elected as the Secretary General beating Kenya Table Tennis boss Andrew Mudibo.

Kenya Hockey Union Elyna Shiveka was beaten to the treasurer’s post after losing to Eliud Kariuki who takes over from Farida Shiroya.

The NOCK elections have been delayed for months now after The Kenya Taekwondo Federation obtained an court injunction to stop the process that was due for early May  2017.

The elections will usher in a new era after the new constitution gave a fresh road map towards cleaning the mess witnessed at the Olympic body in the past decades.
