RUTO’s men HASSAN WARIO and KIPCHOGE KEINO arrested over theft of Sh 55 milllion during the Rio Olympic Games – DCI is not joking with thieves

Thursday October 18, 2018-Former Sports Cabinet Secretary, Hassan Wario and former National Olympic Committee (NOCK) member, Kipchoge Keino, have been arrested over the 2016 Rio Olympic scandal where they stole Sh 55 million.

The two were arrested on Thursday when they appeared at Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters along Kiambu road.

Two other suspects, who responded to DCI summon, were also arrested.

The four are expected in court on Friday to face various counts of fraud.

Wario who publicly disbanded NOCK and handed over the duties to Sports Kenya when the scandal blew up just after the Rio games faces six counts of abuse of office.

He is accused of using his office improperly to confer a benefit of Sh1.5mn to one Adam Omar by including him in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Kenyan delegation team which travelled to Brazil leading to loss of public funds.

Keino on his part is said to have authorized payment of Sh15.9mn as allowances to the Kenyan Team and abused his office by conferring a benefit of Sh2.5mn to his son Ian Kipchoge by including him to travel to the Rio games.
