FKF accused of funds embezzlement



Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Sam Nyamweya's tenure is under financial scrutiny after members of the executive committee presented documents to Cabinet Secretary Dr Hassan Wario accusing him of embezzlement of funds.

The quartet also wrote to the director of Ethics and anti corruption, Fifa secretary general Jerome Valcke on the same.

In a scathing statement signed by Hussein Swalleh Terry who is the Coast Province National executive member on behalf of former CEO Lordvick Aduda, suspended Nyanza Nec member Tom Alila and suspended Vice Chairman Sammy Sholei.

Nyamweya is accused of failing to declare $410,222 in the last Annual General Meeting held in June in Nairobi with the quartet accusing him of having swindled the monies for personal use.

Part of the letter read: "However after thorough scrutiny of the financial statement, it has come out glaringly that certain colossal amounts of money received were by design not reflected in the statement issues during the AGM."

"It has been established that over $410,222 is missing either received from Fifa or Caf and this we have got evidence to bark showing how the discrepancies happened.”

The letter gave a breakdown of the monies missing stating that on:

-2/12/2011 a total of $ 197,950 was received from Fifa via the federations dollar account

-December 2011 $8000 was paid by Cecafa as air tickets refunds

-20/04/2012 $41,322 was received from Caf

-03/05/2012 $2965 received from Caf

-21/7/2012 $19,975 received from Swen Labels International for the aborted Harambee Stars vs Jamaica friendly match that was to be played in the U.S.A

-31/07/2012 $100,000 received from CAF for the stalled Kisumu Stadium Goal Project

-January 2012 $20,000 received for the Kenya vs Senegal and Kenya vs Guinea friendlies

-April 2012 $ 20,000 received for Kenya vs Egypt friendly.

They have called on the Anti Corruption body to investigate and prosecute Sam Nyamweya and called on both Caf and Fifa to take immediate action.
