Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Sam Nyamweya has kicked off a fight with the Ministry of Sports, Arts and Culture over the suggestion that the ministry will be forming a Harambee Stars Management Board (HSMB).
The FKF president has vowed to take legal action if the current Commissioner of Sports Gordon Oluoch does not provide the accounting report of the defunct Harambee Stars management board.
In a letter to Oluoch and copied to the Sports Cabinet Secretary Dr Hassan Wario, Nyamweya says Oluoch should provide inventory of the kit and equipment of the national team used under his tenure when he acted as the board’s secretary.
Nyamweya has also accused Oluoch and the board of mismanaging Kshs 5million set aside for Harambee Stars’ trip to Seychelles in a World Cup qualifier in 2011.
“We wish to bring to your attention that after our office was ushered in, the board gave out Ksh5million to one of our National Executive Committee (NEC) members Tom Alila directly without any authorization by FKF purporting that the money was used to facilitate the national team’s trip to Seychelles for a World Cup Qualifier.
“As we conclude the current term of office ahead of the FKF elections and in this era of transparency and in order to safeguard the integrity of our federation, we are demanding that as the former secretary of the HSMB you avail the financial report of the board and the inventory of the Harambee Stars kits and equipment held by the board,” Nyamweya said in the letter.
