High Court stops Kenya Rugby Union polls

High Court stops Kenya Rugby Union polls

Sports Registrar Rosemary Wasike filed an application saying she doesn't agree with the Sport Dispute Tribunal's ruling that nullified KRU elections held in September last year.

The Kenya Rugby Union Annual General Meeting and elections set for today, Friday 24 March 2023 have been stopped by the High Court in Nairobi.

This is after Sports Registrar Rosemary Wasike filed an application saying she doesn't agree with the Sport Dispute Tribunal's ruling that nullified KRU elections held in September last year.

Lady Justice Christine Meoli temporarily ordered the stay of the notice dated February 20, 2023 calling for the AGM scheduled for March 24, 2023.


"The motion is certified for hearing on May 9, 2023," said Justice Meoli in an order to acting KRU secretary general Ray Olendo and Kenya Rugby Union.

The move by Wasike to halt the process will come with far reaching repercussions with the term of the current KRU Board set to elapse on March 31, this year.

With no board in place, the Ministry of Sports could be forced to move in and form an interim committee, which could result into suspension by World Rugby and Africa Rugby.
