Sports CS Amina turns down Senate summons once again

For the second time, Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed turned down a summon at the Senate Labor and Social Welfare Committee to answer to her apparent takeover of the Football Kenya Federation.

According to the Parliamentary Powers and Privileges Act, the Committee is likely order a fine of Sh500, 000 to CS Amina or order the Inspector General of Police to issue an arrest warrant against her.

CS Amina was set to appear before the Committee last week Thursday but instead wrote a letter asking for seven days. However, Committee members, led by Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja who chairs the body summoned her to appear on Tuesday.

However, she was a no show just a few days after forming a caretaker committee to run the affairs of the Federation.

FKF officials who were also invited for the meeting requested for a postponement due to president Nick Mwendwa’s arrest and gag orders issued by the court after his release on Monday.

“I think members are aware of the developments that have happened and since the last meeting it would have been very strange to hear the federation. We can excuse them for that reason as we establish the status and as the current court case goes on, we will get proper legal counsel on how to proceed on federation and on the issue of the Cabinet Secretary,” Sakaja said.

The CS had been initially called in to explain the Ministry’s involvement in the inspection by the Sports Registrar’s office.

On Thursday, she said she would not honour the summon as she was receiving the report. Shortly after, she formed a committee to take charge of the Federation. Mwendwa and his officials were later on barred from accessing the offices, just after he addressed a press conference trashing Amina’s actions.

The CS had ordered the Sports Registrar to form a committee to probe the Federation on misuse of funds from the government and according to the report, there was a misappropriation and non explained expenditures of close to Sh500mn.

It is this decision that led to Amina ordering a Caretaker Committee on the Federation.

In the Senate last week, Senators were infuriated by Amina’s decision not to honor summons, with Sakaja telling her that the orders by the Senate ‘were not a coffee date proposal where you are asked what time works well for you.’

Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior also threatened to sponsor a censure motion against the CS who she termed rogue and disrespectful.
