Mwendwa’s ability to steer FKF now questionable as DCI grills him over mismanagement of funds

FKF president Nick Mwendwa has been quizzed over the usage of money allocated to the team for Afcon. This has been made severe as players who participated in the tournament, are yet to receive their bonuses in full.

Yesterday Harambee stars captain Victor Wanyama made things ever harder when he punched some holes on Nick Mwendwa’s administration.

Harambee Stars have not been paid their winning allowances even after they beat Tanzania in the last group match in Cairo.

Former sports Permanent Secretary Peter Kaberia and Nick Mwendwa have been having run ins over the monies allocated for Harambee stars.

Mwendwa prepared a report on how the millions were spent but the Ministry went on to hand over the report to the Auditor General for further scrutiny a clear indication that it had some reservations.

Since then, the government has always been reluctant to fund the national teams as they developed suspicion on FKF’s ability to utilize the money allocated to it with a high level of integrity.

Mwendwa was also put to task on how the federation spent KSh135 million in the purchase of Outside Broadcasting (OB) van.

One of the complainants wanted to know why FKF went on to lease the outside broadcasting equipment from a company that went into liquidation shortly after the deal

Mwendwa has repeatedly absolved himself from the blame.
OB van issue had attracted the eyes of Fifa and a section of football stakeholders who wanted FKF to answer all the questions raises regarding the purchase of the equipment.

During the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Mombasa in 2017 , delegates approved the purchase of the van as they prepared for SuperSport TV exit from the Kenyan football scene.According to Nick, everything was above board.

“We did everything overboard with total transparency and all I can say is the federation is currently a creditor after WTS Group which sold us the van went into administration,”

Mwendwa said in defence of their purchase of the Ob van.

DCI is preparing their files before handing it over to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) for further action. Should this proceed, the battle for FKF presidency will be between Musonye and Nyamweya
