Nick Mwendwa has reiterated his dreams of taking Kenyan football to higher grounds after securing a second term during the FKF presidential elections on Saturday.
Speaking to Kenyan media, Nick as he is commonly known was not afraid to dream big.
“We are hopeful that in two or three years we can first clear our debts. But we also feel that there is a world cup calling, both for the men and women’s teams. Kenya needs to rise now and go to the next level. We have to go back to the African Cup of Nations and now make it to the world cup,” said Nick who was proud to have secured a second term
The FKF presidential election had been canceled twice by the Sports Disputes Tribunal and finally the aspirants went to ballot.
Nick got 77 votes, former Gormahia CEO got five votes, Journalist Herbert Mwachiro got only three while another journalist Bonface Osano as well as former Afc leopards chairman Dan Mule got nothing.
“We have got 90% of votes. They have shown that they believe in what we are doing, they believe in also what we have gone through and I want to thank our members. They have always been a part of our journey,” boasted Nick who earlier on had dared his opponents to the ballot and promised them that whatever happens, he would still win.
Mwendwa now has another term of four years to prove his critics wrong and make his dreams of taking both Harambee Stars and harambee Starlets to the world cup.
If at all that would happen, then Nick Mwendwa will go down to the books of history as one of the most successful federation heads, after all Kenya has never attended a world cup and a first time won’t be that bad either.
