Kenya Para Volleyball Federation: stage set for elections this month

 

The stage is set for the eagerly awaited Kenya Para Volleyball Federation Governing body’s elections which are tentatively set for the end of March 2021.

Despite the new developments, the elections is riddled with allegations from some quarters that the federation President Polycarp Mboya has been suspended from the helm.

Mboya has however dismissed the suspension allegations adding that branches were not aware of the action while the executive did not meet to make the announcement.

‘’As far as I’m concerned, Mboya added, I’m still the President of Kenya Para Volleyball Federation. No meeting was held to occasion the changes. Branches  are not aware and in any case no notice was given to members. I’m ready to face off with whomever wants to oppose  me. We have planned for elections towards the  end of March probably the weekend of  27/28 “

Mboya  has  requested branches to resume training after the long break following the Covid-19 pandemic that affected all sporting activities. He urged the branches to observe the Covid-19 protocols as per the Ministry of health directive.

The first event this   year, according to Mboya will be the  men’s  Olympic qualifiers  set for  next month followed by Trans Nzoia tournament to be  held in April,  while the major climax will be the World qualifiers tournament set for Egypt in December.

The Federation Boss has appealed to the Government through the Ministry of Sports to clear an outstanding debt of Ksh.2.7 million which is owed to the Africa para volleyball body.

Kenya was suspended by the Africa Para volleyball body for failing to remit sh.2.7 million. The suspension, noted Mboya, has spoilt our image and good reputation. I’m making an impassionate appeal to the Sports Ministry to settle the debt so that we can return back to the International scene”

Should Kenya fail to clear the debt, the country won’t be able to participate in the final Olympics qualifier in March as well as the World qualifier slated for December in Egypt.
