Kenya Hockey Union chairman Nashon Randiek and Kenya Rugby Union Director John Kilonzi have joined the race to vie for the posh Secretary General’s position in the May 5 National Olympics Committee-Kenya (Nock) elections.
They will face incumbent Francis Kinyili Paul and Kenya Table Tennis Federation chief Andrew Mudibo who was fronted by track legend Paul Tergat as part of his new dawn line up on Tuesday.
The retired army officer Randiek says it is about time he got involved more in the National body in efforts to represent the marginalized sports.
“I will be doing this for the many players who feel that they are left out. What we don’t is an office where leaders never care about the affiliate federations. I feel I can do a good job given the mandate,” noted Randiek
The Secretary General is the chief administrative officer at the national Olympics body with the holder vested sweeping powers and overseeing the plum budget that includes grants for international body, the IOC.
Thus far, the Nock presidency has attracted retired five-time World Cross champion, Paul Tergat who is also a two-time Olympics silver winner challenging long-serving leader, Dr. Kipchoge Keino.
