Football Kenya Federation books have been placed under scrutiny by the Office of the Auditor-General over embezzlement of Sh244 million they received to cater for Harambee Stars’ preparation for this year’s AFCON.

“FKF gave us their report and we sent it back with questions. We have passed the same report to the Office of the Auditor-General to look at it and give us their opinion on the expenditure figures reflected in the document.”Sports PS Kirimi Kaberia said on Thursday when he appeared before the National Assembly Committee on Sports.

Last month, Nick Mwendwa led federation accused PS Kaberia creating bad blood between them and the government. They also have accused the PS of having an unresponsive attitude in their requests for funding from the Sports, Arts and Social Development Fund.

Yesterday, on Thursday, the Chairman of the committee Victor Munyaka asked the PS to explain his altercation with FKF over the funds.

“The report FKF provided had issues with accountability and the auditor is in the process of looking at the documents. I plead with the committee to allow the office to carry out the process so that we can give you factual information. Let’s hold another session and go through FKF issues. Probably away from the cameras and you will realize that there is a law governing the use of the money in the Fund. The accusations were not based on facts,” the PS said.
