Former Sports Cs Hassan Wario sentenced to Six Years in Jail

Former Cabinet secretary Hassan Wario has been sentenced to six years in Prison if he fails to raise 3.6M over 2016 Rio Olympic scandal.

Wario and National olympic committee of Kenya (Nock) Stephen Soi have been accused of corruption and abuse of office for literally not complying with procedures relating to public funds.

The former National Olympic committee of Kenya(NOCK) Stephen Soi, has been fined 105M with an option of 12 years in prison if he fails to raise the amount.

The former National olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK) has three counts of abuse of office and three abuses for literally failing to comply with procedures relating to public funds.

The court while charging Wario accused him of taking advantage of his office to allow three other names in the Kenyan travel list and paying allowances to the three.

“The additional names were added afrer they closed the acreditation, clearly this was an indicator that the three were not part of the team Kenya.” Said the court

“Some ministry officials misappropriated sh88,611,480 meant for air ticket. Nock has been misappropriating Nike contract funds and kit amounting to sh126million meant for athletes since 2013.” The report reads.

Additionally the court also learned that the ministry could not account for 54million.

Magistrate Elizabeth Juma said that the former Cs did not have the authority to allow the three to travel to Rio in Brazil. The three were Monica Sairo, Richard Abura and Edan Adow who all received allowance.

The two will be detained at Gigiri police station pending their sentencing on Thursday.
