Ababu Namwamba's lust for money exposed

When Abubu Namwamba took over as the cabinet secretary for Youth Affairs, Arts, Sports and Culture, a section of Kenyans were skeptical about his ability to run a ministry.

And already, embattled Footbal Kenya Federation president Nick Mwendwa boasts to have pocketed Namwamba.

To Mwendwa, Doris Petra, the person holding his office gets orders from him and is business as usual.

In secret, Mwendwa claims that the CS calls him requesting for handouts to travel upcountry and even funded his recent festive season.

Mwendwa was arrested in November 2021 after former Sports minister Amina Mohamed disbanded the FKF and set up a caretaker committee to run football over alleged financial impropriety during his tenure.

He was charged with embezzling Sh38 million shillings received from the government and other sponsors as well as conspiracy to defraud the FKF of about $254,000.

Recently, Namwamba hinted at suspended Mwendwa possibly returning to his seat in future saying that he opted not to bring back the besieged official when he reinstated the disbanded FKF executive earlier this month owing to the fact that he has a pending court case.

He however alluded to Mwendwa making a comeback should the court acquit him of the said offences.

What is emerging is that Namwamba has failed in dealing with key issues particularly affecting the Sports ministry.

Namwamba while appearing before the national assembly’s committee on appointments during his vetting pledged to deal with the rot at the Sports ministry, which he observed has denied the sporting sector the opportunity to grow, while at the same time acknowledging that some rogue agents had run down the ministry.

Namwamba said several scandals in the ministry have tainted its name beyond regional borders.

While taking over, the CS vowed to transform sports and restore order to Kenyan football pledging to work with all stakeholders in solving the immediate problems.

Wednesday, March 29, 2023

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president Nick Mwendwa is a free man following the quashing of the Sh38m theft case filed against him by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji.

This now means Mwendwa can resume his role as FKF boss having stepped aside pending the outcome of the case.
Kiambu Senior Principal Magistrate Wilson Rading Wednesday quashed the charges saying they are unfounded and unconstitutional.

Rading said the charges filed against Mwendwa resulted from a probe by a committee appointed by former Sports CS Amina Mohammed which were inconclusive.
The magistrate freed Mwendwa and directed that he should not be apprehended and charged based on the same findings of the probe team.
Mwendwa’s lawyers Eric Mutua, Charles Njenga and Victor Omwebu asked the court to terminate the criminal case as it was an affront to Mwendwa’s fundamental and constitutional rights.
“After considering the evidence presented by Senior counsel Mutua Njenga and Omwebu, l find that they made a case to warrant this court’s intervention to protect the abuse of the court process,” ruled Rading.
He said Mwendwa has proven that the charges are fatally defective.
