Former sports Cabinet Secretary Dr. Hassan Wario has been charged with six counts of abuse of office.
Wario who appeared before Chief Magistrate, Douglas Ogoti, pleaded not guilty and was freed on a million shillings cash bail and an alternative 2 million shillings bond.
Wario was charged alongside former director of administration, Haron Komen, who was facing 3 counts of abuse of office among them getting air tickets without planning.
Komen also pleaded not guilty.
The Director of Public Prosecutions however requested that the plea on athletics legend Kipchoge Keino be deferred for seven days.
Keino is expected to be a state witness in the misappropriation of 55 million Kenya shillings during the 2016 Rio Olympics in Brazil.
The former sports officials are charged with making unauthorized payments, over-payment of allowances amounting to over Ksh.15 million and purchasing tickets worth Ksh.22 million which were not used by athletes or officials in the trip that was full of joyriders.
The trial of the case is set to start on the 16th of November this year.
