NOCK looks to redeem messy image with new constitution

By KBC Sports Desk

The reviewed National Olympic Committee of Kenya, (NOCK) constitution is set for adoption on Tuesday next week after the current NOCK Executive committee members and affiliate agreed on outstanding issues that had stalled the passing of the document on two previous attempts.

This has been confirmed by NOCK, Secretary General Francis K. Paul.

The news comes after days of tension following the failed attempts at consensus which brought with them the looming threat of a possible ban from International Olympic Committee (IOC).

IOC demanded NOCK to review its constitution and address governance issues that emerged after the committee was accused of bungling Team Kenya’s preparation at the Rio Olympics games in 2016.

The adoption of the draft constitution will pave way for the setting of a date for fresh NOCK elections which Secretary General Paul says could be at the end of April this year.

The new constitution strips the Executive Committee members of the right to vote.
