IAAF refers Kenyan official Okeyo to ethics commission

The IAAF has referred Athletics Kenya vice-president David Okeyo to the organisation’s ethics commission after the Sunday Times revealed he had been questioned by police in Kenya over claims of corruption.

Okeyo, a member of the IAAF ruling council, is alleged, along with two other officials, to have syphoned off funds from a sponsorship deal between the national association and multinational sportswear giant Nike.

“An investigation by The Sunday Times and the German broadcaster ARD/WDR has uncovered a sworn affidavit in which a whistleblower claimed that the officials syphoned close to 700,000 (650,000 euros) out of the federation’s bank account, most of it in cash. He says he reported his concerns to the police,” the Sunday Times said.
