Ambani moves to court to have AFC Leopards elections stopped

Former Ingwe striker Boniface Ambani has sued Kenya Premier League side AFC Leopards claiming that his constitutional rights have been violated and are still being violated by denying him chance to contest in the club’s election slated for 23rd of this month.

Ambani argues that the AFC Leopards’ Election Management Group (EMG) which is meant to run the said elections is not properly constituted.

The former player now wants the election slated for 23rd of June be temporarily stopped pending hearing and determination of the case.

“The applicant’s (Boniface Ambani) constitutional rights have been violated and are still being violated as he has been denied the chance to contest in the respondent’s(AFC Leopards) elections of the 23rd of June, 2019 despite, being fully qualified as per the elections by law,” read the certificate of urgency seen by Citizen Digital.

“The EMG, which was meant to run the said elections, was not properly constituted and thus illegally running and managing the said elections,” argued Ambani through his Lawyer Elvis Majani on June 4, 2019.

“That I have been precluded from participating in the forthcoming club’s election and subsequently vying for the positions of the club’s chairperson on the basis of the amended constitution which is yet to be passed,” reads court papers.

Alongside outgoing AFC Leopards caretaker committee chairman Maurice Amahwa, Ambani is among five candidates who have been locked out of the forthcoming club elections.

He claims that he is a member of the football club –AFC.

It is his argument that the decision to bar his candidacy in the said elections is a violation of political rights under the constitution.

KRA, CRB, HELB and certificate of goof conduct are some of the things EMG chairman Dr Geoffrey Serede disclosed that the five casualties did not comply with.

In February this year, Ambani rejected the club’s appointment as an assistant coach to Casa Mbungo demanding the team officials make an official statement before he could take up the offer.

Ín May 2019, Ambani lamented at the electoral clearance process terming it tiresome’. “A lot of things are still in darkness, it is hectic,” he said then.

Ngara Health Centre will remain shut until further notice following contraction of coronavirus by one of the clinical officers.

According to health CEC Nairobi city county Hitan Majevdia the county has taken serious measures to ensure that all staff that came into contact wit the Coronavirus suspect are all quarantined and that the facility is fully fumigated.

‘‘We have  sealed it, for now, we want to make sure that the place is fumigated and cured fumigation is done daily, once open we shall also ensure any patient going there is screened and tested for Covid-19 symptoms before  granted access.’’ He said.

He has also dismissed claims that the facility does not have PPIs kits saying that they have been supplied in all health centres to ensure no medical staff is at risk.

Meanwhile, the county is embarking on slum fumigation targeting densely populated areas.

‘‘We have started moving into populated  slums yesterday we were in Dagoreti and Kangemi but we want wananchi  to co-operate with  us during this exercise.’’

Tributes paid to ex-Marseille president Diouf

MARSEILLE, France, Apr 1Tributes poured in Wednesday for former Marseille president Pape Diouf, who has died aged 68 after contracting the coronavirus.

Diouf, who became the first ever black president of a top European football club, died on Tuesday in Dakar, his family told AFP.

The former journalist and football agent led the club between 2005-2009 and helped build the side that lifted the Ligue 1 title in 2010.

“He was a man of conviction, a man of wit and passion for the game and all those involved in it,” said French World Cup-winning national coach Didier Deschamps, who was recruited as Marseille coach by Diouf in 2009. “His sudden and brutal passing saddens me deeply.”

Diouf was hospitalised in Senegal after contracting the virus there and became the country’s first COVID-19 fatality.

He had been due to leave for Nice earlier on Tuesday to be treated in France, but a sharp deterioration in his health — which saw him placed on a respirator — prevented him from boarding the plane.

Moving to Marseille from Senegal aged 18, he was set to follow in the footsteps of his father, a World War II veteran, by embarking on a career in the military. But he soon switched paths.

After dropping out of university he worked at the La Marseillaise newspaper before changing careers to become a football agent, handling some of Africa’s top talent including Didier Drogba, who enthralled Marseille’s Stade Velodrome in 2003-04.

He was brought on to the club’s payroll as general manager in 2004 and a year later rose to become president, “a difficult post, where there were very few men from diverse backgrounds,” said Jacques-Henri Eyraud, the club’s current president.

– Painful –

“But he fought tooth and nail, and won the hearts of thousands of supporters.”

Diouf was acutely aware of the lack of diversity in the boardrooms of European clubs, telling an interviewer in 2008 that it was painful to him that he was the only black president of a European club.

“I am the only black president of a European club. It’s a painful observation” but one that “fits the image of a European society, especially French society, that excludes ethnic minorities,” he said.

Nevertheless fans at the Velodrome embraced the ever popular figure who was eventually forced out by internal differences in the boardroom in 2009.

“Pape will remain in the hearts of the Marseillais forever, as one of the great architects in the club’s history,” Marseille said in a statement.

Senegal President Macky Sall also paid tribute to “a great figure of sport” on Twitter.

“To his family, I offer, on behalf of the nation, my deepest condolences.”

In Ligue 1, his most bitter rival was always Lyon chief Jean-Michel Aulas. The pair traded barbs over the years but the bitter jibes veiled his respect for a “great president” said Aulas.

“I had profound respect for him,” Aulas said. “He was a great president and very successful one.”

“He knew football, the media, the agents and the players,” said Louis Acaries, adviser to Marseille’s then owner Robert Louis-Dreyfus.

“But above all he was a man. And a good man.”
