In a surprise turn of events, Football Kenya Federation Aberdare branch have announced they have recovered Sh2.5million they alleged had been withdrawn by former FKF president Sam Nyamweya from the national office account.
The branch had taken Nyamweya to task for withdrawing the cash seven months after he left office. However, on Monday, Aberdare branch chairman Gordon Chege, admitted recovering the money without stating whether it was from Nyamweya or the Standard Chartered bank where FKF held the account.
“We are pleased to inform our stakeholders that the money has fully been recovered after several efforts by us and the national office,” he said of the money initially meant to pay for participation fees for the over 100 clubs taking part in the branch league.
"We also take this opportunity to say sorry to Nyamweya. He has done a lot to Kenyan football and deserves respect."
The branch is planning to hold a meeting next week to discuss on how the money will be used.
