The withdrawal of the court case by Tom Tikolo, is the last hurdle that has to be cleared before the overdue Cricket Kenya elections could be held.
CK chairman Samir Inamdar said on Wednesday the recently elected Nairobi Provincial Cricket Association chairman should remove the court injunction filed on May 25 and resolve the issues with the parties.
Tikolo had sought to prevent the NPCA executive and its eight delegates from taking part in the CK annual general meeting of May 27.
The delegates had been picked by a NPCA full council meeting of February 28.
Inamdar said: “Among the 13 defendants, some may want to stand for elective posts in CK but cannot do so as long as the court case has not been dispensed with.
“There is no reason for the case to continue; it has been overtaken by events.”
Contacted, Tikolo said he shared the sentiments expressed by Inamdar, saying: “I have asked my lawyer to give me legal advice on the matter.”
The CK elections have been postponed twice this year. They were first called off on January 7 when Nairobi-based clubs raised their concern on picking of the delegates. In the NPCA full council meeting of February 28 eight delegates failed to agree.
A third NPCA full council meeting was convened but two days earlier, two candidates pulled out of the race in favour of their opponents.
