Former Sports Cabinet Secretary S Hassan Wario now awaits conviction after an Anti-Corruption court has found him guilty of graft and abuse of office that led to loss of public funds during the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
He was found guilty alongside former National Olympic Committee of Kenya (Nock) assistant treasurer Stephen Arap Soi.
Anti-corruption Magistrate Elizabeth Juma has this afternoon said Wario took advantage of his office and added an additional three people to the list of Team Kenya and had them paid allowances yet he had no mandate to do so.
Juma ruled that said there was wastage of public money during the Rio fiasco and Wario did not have mandate to allow the additional three people to travel as Team Kenya cohort.
Effectively, he has been found guilty of willfully failing to comply with applicable procedures and guidelines relating to management of public funds.
The trio who were irregularly enlisted in the delegation are; Monica Sairo, Richard Abura and Edan Adow.
Wario was however acquitted on the charge of engaging in a project without planning.
The planning was for the Rio Olympics.
All the other four accused persons have been acquitted of the charges levelled against them for lack of sufficient evidence.
They include former Principal Secretary Richard Ekai, Haron Komen, former Director of Administration at the Ministry of Sports, Francis Kinyili and Patrick Kimathi Nkabu.
Wario and Soi will be remanded at Gigiri police station pending mitigation and sentencing on tomorrow morning.
