Former Football Kenya Federation [FKF] President Sam Nyamweya has urged the Senate not to interfere with the Ministry of Sports probe into the Football Kenya Federation.

Speaking on Tuesday, Nyamweya said it was quite unfortunate that the Senate, the most respected house that is meant to pass laws has reduced itself to supporting a corrupt system running the Football Kenya Federation.

“It is in the public domain that the FKF office led by Nick Mwendwa has been a disgrace and has plundered finances meant for football development,” said Nyamweya.

“It is saddening that some senators can today blackmail the Cabinet Secretary of Sports who is empowered by the constitution to ensure that sports federations operate within the laws of this country.”

Sports CS Amina Mohammed directed for the auditing of the FKF accounts and especially the monies the federation received from the government.

” For some senators to now blackmailing the CS with action should she move to take action on the federation is not only laughable but wrong,” added Nyamweya.

“The CS is working on the public interest because there is evidence public funds cannot be accounted for.”

He further said the Senate must separate between FKF and Nick Mwendwa.

“If Nick Mwendwa as an individual is found to have diverted money to his private accounts as alleged, he should face the law,” Nyamweya posed.

“Kenyan footballers are suffering and the Senate will be judged harshly for siding with an inept, corrupt and rudderless federation.”

“Why are some senators jumping the gun. They should let the audit process be finished and debate on the report.”
