Former Council for East and Central Africa Football Associations (Cecafa) General Secretary Nicholas Musonye will contest for the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) presidency.
Musonye earlier left CECAFA and hinted that he will be joining politics but he has is set to return to football management.
He told Goal.com that he will be contesting for the stalled elections.
“I have been persuaded by several stakeholders to throw myself in the race for the top seat and I have really been thinking about it,” Musonye said as quoted by Goal.
“My phone is always busy with calls from football-loving Kenyans who feel I am the one to resurrect the dwindling standards of the sport and I want to state I am going to give it a try, I will go for it.”
He joins a race that already has incumbent Mwendwa, former FKF president Sam Nyamweya, former AFC Leopards chairman Alex Ole Magelo, former Vihiga County Governor Bishop Moses Akaranga, Gor Mahia CEO Lordvick Aduda.
