It has now emerged that Kenya’s chief de mission Stephen arap Soi carried Sh25 million to Rio in cash to pay for accommodation.
Soi revealed that millions of cash went to waste in Brazil after the Kenya’s Olympics Committee paid for expensive rooms for use by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Sports Cabinet Secretary Hassan Wario but were not used.
Soi also accused Cherengany MP Wesley Korir of assigning himself the role of Team Captain.
But the MP, who faded out of the men’s marathon stormed from the hearing claiming:
“Coming here and saying I elected myself is b******t”
Korir revealed that he was elected in Eldoret and when they went to State House, the boxing and rugby teams endorsed him as the captain for team Kenya.
