Why Nick Mwendwa wants to audit ‘Nyamweya debts’
Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa says plans are underway to audit debts that the federation incurred during the previous office bearers’ tenure.
In his own admission, Mwendwa’s office inherited a Sh170 million debt from the previous office led by Sam Nyamweya.
The youthful federation chief however suggested in a recent interview that some of the numbers from the creditors “don’t add up”.
“We have been looking through the documentation and things are just not adding up. Some of the requests have no receipts and such like things. So an auditor will be coming in to do some verification,” Mwendwa said.
“Actually some of those who claim to be owed have already taken us to court. We in turn requested for an out of court settlement because there was always that risk of having our assets attached,” he added.
Some of those debts reportedly include the tens of millions of shillings owed to former Harambee Stars coaches Bobby Williamson, Adel Amrouche and Henri Michel.
Others are from such services as accommodation and transport rendered to the various national teams.
