FKF appears before senate, maintains innocence in ongoing probe

 

Football Kenya Federation chairman, Nick Mwendwa, says the Federation is yet to receive any response from the Ministry of Sports, in regards to reasons that occasioned the ongoing inspection of the federation’s finances.

While appearing before the Senate labor and social welfare committee on Thursday, Mwendwa said that the federation has so far complied with the ministry’s initiative, despite the latter’s reluctance to inform them of its objective.

‘’It’s false that we are not accountable because if you don’t account or do returns you can’t  get the funding, very little of our monies comes from the government’’,Mwendwa said.

We have been sent EACC officers, DCI, ministry auditors, auditor general,  and inspection team from the committee there have been no allegation or proof of misappropriation of funds’’, Barry told the senate committee.
