0 540

Kenya’s Ambassador to Austria Hassan Wario and athletics legend Kipchoge Keino were on Thursday arrested after they had turned themselves to police over Rio Olympics scandal.

Also arrested were former director of administration Haron Komen and former finance officer Patrick Kimithi Nkabu in the sports ministry.

They had reported to the Directorate of Criminal Infestations (DCI) headquarters at about 5:30 am to beat a court deadline.

Police said they were accompanied by lawyer Cecil Miller when they arrived.

Wario had arrived from Vienna on Wednesday evening ahead of the session with police. Keino was also away in Mexico.

After arriving at DCI they were taken in for processing with their fingerprints being taken before they were informed they were under arrest.

They are formally expected to take plea on Friday but there was a push to release them on police bond ahead of the arraignment.

Anti-Corruption Court magistrate Douglas Ogoti on Monday directed them to present themselves DCI by 6 am Thursday, failure to which warrants of arrest would be issued against them.
