For the last one week now Sports Minister Amina Mohamed along with the Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa have been trending on twitter for all the wrong reasons and poor perfomance at their repsctive dockets.

Senate probed the orders by CS Amina to audit Football Kenya Federation (FKF) which elicited a heated debate on the motive born by the ministry.

The lawmakers raised questions on what motive the CS had to warrant the audit. In addition, they tasked the Senate Committee on Labour and Social Welfare to explain how the CS has been managing sports funds under her docket.

Specifically, #i asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to either sack the CS or assign her lighter duties. He alleged that Amina had presided over mega graft at the Ministry of Sports.

"Can you believe in Ksh40 billion sports fund, they have allocated Ksh31 billion for Woodball, Kung Fu Ksh81 billion, yet things like rugby, athletes and football, have not been well funded," Cherargei stated.

The Nandi senator argued that a number of sports stadia in the country have been allocated billions of shillings but are yet to be completed. "The same stadia have been banned. They cannot even host friendly matches,” Cherargei paused.

Cherargei's sentiments were echoed by Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula, who requested for a comprehensive inquiry by the Committee on how the Ministry of Sports manages its affairs.

“This question is very important, and I want to urge my distinguished nephew to broaden the inquiry not only on football but sports in this country. FKF is now limping, but instead of getting support, we are now embarking on punitive and malicious investigation against it,” Wetangula weighed in.
