Elections to choose fresh leaders of the National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK) could take place on December 20, it has been announced amid concerns of divisions between rival factions within the sporting body.
This was announced as part of a fresh timeline by NOCK deputy secretary general James Chacha, one of the officials arrested when the organisation was disbanded in August.
"We have extended the deadline for our affiliates to bring us suggestions on the changes they want made to the constitution by October 31," he was reported as saying by The Standard newspaper in Kenya.
"On November 8 we will have a draft constitution and circulate the same to our affiliates three days later.
"On November 15, we will hold a stakeholders meeting to discuss the draft.
"On November 18, we will send the proposed constitution to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for approval.
"On December 2, we will hold the Extraordinary meeting to either pass or reject the constitution to pave way for elections on December 20."
All senior officials were directly accused of wrongdoing in the Sports Ministry-ordered purge which followed the Olympic Games, except for the body's chairman, Kipchoge Keino.
They were accused of key accommodation and travel mishaps, including the "mishandling of accreditation", as well as kits which allegedly never reached athletes.
A clear the air meeting was held last month in Lausanne between sporting and Government officials and the IOC.
The IOC ordered the NOCK to immediately convene an Extraordinary General Assembly in order to "address and clarify" issues which arose during the Olympic Games.
They must also "review and update the NOCK Constitution currently in force, as necessary, and submit the proposed amendments to the IOC for approval in accordance with the Olympic Charter" before agreeing on a process leading to fresh quadrennial elections before the end of the year.
The IOC had threatened the NOCK with suspension if the dispute is not resolved, with further discussions expected at the IOC Executive Board meeting in Lausanne in December.
But it is claimed that members of the NOCK Executive Committee are deliberately slowing the process in order to resist changes to the constitution.
This was alleged by figures including Andrew Mudibo, the Kenya Table Tennis Federation President who was appointed interim secretary general following the disbanding.
Mudibo also revealed that they are consulting with anti-corruption and criminal bodies into past wrongdoing supposedly committed at the NOCK.
"As officials of our National Sports Federations we shall not sit back and watch NOCK fall due to the personal interests of select-few individuals at the expense of the hard work of Kenyan sports men and women," he told the Daily Nation.
"We will no longer be held ransom by the mismanagement and corruption that has plagued our sports for so many years and we are prepared to face the consequences of our actions even if it leads to a ban because such as a ban will ultimately ensure the future of sports for generations to come."
Constitutional changes they are pushing for include the removal of the right to vote from the members of the NOCK Executive Committee and the removal of the chairman's casting vote in the event of a tie to declare a winner of a position at the Electoral Congress.
The introduction of a two-term limit for all elected officials is also being considered.
Chacha denied these allegations, however.
"We are not slowing down the process as some are claiming and are determined to adhere to the agreement we signed with IOC," he insisted.
The official did, however, reveal that they have requested Sports Minister Hassan Wario to lift his order disbanding the NOCK.
"He has to rescind that decision otherwise if some of us get re-elected this may be viewed as an illegal process," he said.
