Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia will hold their elections on August 8.

The date was agreed on after a virtual Executive Committee meeting held on Tuesday and chaired by long-serving Chairman Ambrose Rachier.

"Following the Executive Committee meeting today it has been decided that the club's elections will take place on August 8, an Electoral Board will be put in place to oversee the polls which will be conducted under the new constitution," part of the resolutions of the meeting read.

According to Gor’s constitution the positions to be contested are the chairman’s, the secretary general-cum-Chief Executive Officer (CEO), the treasurer and organising secretary.

That means that CEO’s post currently held by Lordvick Aduda would become null and avoid after the elections.

Other posts which will no longer exist are senior vice chairman, first vice chairman, second vice chairman, deputy secretary general, assistant deputy secretary general, assistant organising secretary and assistant treasurer.
