CID probe Nyamweya over KES 83 million fraud

04 December 2015, 14:28 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Criminal Investigations Department CID has opened a probe on Football Kenya Federation FKF Chairman Sam Nyamweya over the fraudulent acquisition of KES 83 million.

The CID is investigating Nyamweya after a global football rights company MP and Silva lodged a complaint over the loss and apparent breach of contract.

The company says it was fraudulently led into believing that Nyamweya would provide television rights to the Kenyan Premier League KPL when they signed the deal, something he has not done.

Instead after wiring the amount, Nyamweya went back on the agreement and instead offered the second tier FKF Premier League.

Silva now wants the former FKF boss prosecuted over the offence.

It is understood that to back his claims, Nyamweya produced signatures of the 16 Premier League clubs saying that they had agreed to the arrangement during a meeting in Kakamega.

The clubs though, later came back and disowned the documents, saying that the signatures had all been forged.

" The KPL Governing Council wishes to categorically state that besides Muhoroni Youth FC chairman and Tusker FC secretary general, the other 14 KPL club officials did not attend the alleged meeting held at Kakamega Golf Hotel on Kakamega on 30th January 2015 and that the 16 KPL clubs did not pass the purported resolution endorsing the MP & Silva Global Licensing Agreement," a latter signed by KPL chairman Jack Oguda said.

The clubs have also stated that they have not received any of the amount mentioned above and that they have no knowledge of its existence.

Nyamweya has been in trouble in recent times with the government, especially after the issues the national team Harambee Stars has gone through in recent times.

He is set to contest the FKF elections later on this month.
