Nyamweya denies stealing FKF money despite irregular Sh2m bank withdrawal

Former Football Kenya Federation president Sam Nyamweya has denied any any involvement in misappropriation of the federation’s funds.

He however owned up to recently accessing the body’s coffers and withdrawing Sh2 million.

In his response on Monday, the former football administrator blamed current FKF boss Nick Mwendwa for refusing to pay federation’s workers, a situation he  says forced him to withdraw the money.

“They (FKF) should know that once you inherit someone’s wife, you also have to take in her other children,” said Mr Nyamweya.


Nyamweya alongside former FKF Finance officer Joseph Agola are accused of accessing the funds deposited at Standard Chartered bank in Nairobi.

The withdrawal of the funds from the account owned by the FKF Aberdares branch is shrouded in controversy with questions being asked how Mr Nyamweya and Mr Agola accessed the account despite relinquishing power over a year ago

In the meantime, FKF, through Aberdares branch chairman Gordon Chege confirmed that they have reported the “theft” to the Police.
