The meeting held at Best Western Plus Hotel followed a couple of agendas including presenting the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Report to the members, status update on the OLYMPIAFRICA Center in RUAI, appointment of the NOC-K Electoral Board to conduct the NOC-K elections and bringing the federations up to speed with the provision of the Sports Act No. 25 of 2013 on requirements to be met by those vying for the Executive Committee positions.
“Today, we would like our affiliates to know the journey to Tokyo. Most significantly, there are plenty of lessons to be learnt from the report and experiences of Tokyo that we can apply for the next Olympic cycle already around the corner. Let me say that it is our desire and encouragement that more and more federations should aim at qualifying and participating at the next Olympic Games in Paris.’’ Dr Paul Tergat, President Olympics Kenya
NOC-K discussed on the appointment of the electoral board and the road to a credible, transparent and inclusive process. IEBC was preferred as the board to conduct the elections. The Executive had also held sessions with the Sports Registrar towards ensuring that everything is done in accordance with procedure and law.
The election date was set for 12th of November 2021.
‘’As the campaigns for the various electoral seats kick off shortly, I’d like to reiterate that every candidate must commit to an unequivocal mature and sober canvassing process devoid of personalized attacks and mudslinging,’’ the president added.
The federations were largely represented by their Presidents and Secretary Generals as well as representatives appointed by respective federations and the current NOC-K Executive Members also attended the Assembly.
