Close to half the money allocated by the Government to the Sports Ministry to cater for the IAAF Under-18 World Youth Championship in Nairobi last year went missing.

More than 80 companies are said to have received money from the Ministry, according to a report tabled in the National Assembly by Leader of Majority Aden Duale.

The report by Auditor-General Edward Ouko has put the Sports Ministry on the spot over unaccounted monies – part of the Sh3.5 billion given out to prepare for the four-day championship.

Public Accounts Committee chair Opiyo Wandayi on Wednesday, August 23 invited Sports officials to appear and respond to issues surrounding the report.

“We have invited Sports officials to appear and respond to the latest supposed scandal. The Auditor General is raising serious issues of misappropriation. The PS will have to come with all the officers involved in procurement,” he said.
