Finally, the National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK) elections will be held today after months of uncertainty.

Top officials Stephen Soi and James Chacha will however not be on the ballot.

Soi was to defend his Assistant Treasurer’s post while Chacha was also defending his Assistant Secretary General position.

The two were locked out on a technicality as Kenya Tae-kwondo Association (KTA), which had proposed them, was declared ineligible to take part in the process.

The current NOCK Secretary General F.K Paul is also unlikely to defend his post as he has not been cleared by the Kenya Revenue Authority.

If F.K Paul is barred then it means that top four officials of NOCK will not be on the ballot. Outgoing chairman Kipchoge Keino did not return his nomination papers barring him from defending his post.

The NOCK electoral board also announced four other officials had also been barred from the exercise. [Gilbert Wandera]
