NAIROBI ,Kenya- Kenya Hockey Union (KHU) chairman Nashon Randiek will battle it out with Inderjit Singh Matharu for the top position when the body holds its elections on Saturday.
The two will be part of the 19 candidates who will battle for the 10 positions in the polls which will be overseen by Center for Sports Law.
The new developments come after the High Court on Thursday dismissed a case seeking to stop the polls.
Hockey Kenya Federation (HKF) had earlier this week obtained a temporary injunction to stop the elective Annual General Meeting (AGM).
“We are not satisfied, and will continue to contest the validity and mandate of the Kenya Hockey Union,” HFK vice chairman George Jalang’o said on Friday.
According to Randiek, the election was due to be held on October 28 but was postponed due to the Africa Cup of Nations which were held In Ismailia, Egypt from October 22-29.
Inderjit Singh Matharu, a former Kenya international and Olympian, is optimistic about toppling the former Military officer with the aim of bringing the long-awaited change to the federation.
