National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK) treasurer Fridah Shiroya is poised to play state witness after all charges against her were dropped in a latest twist in the dispute between sporting and political authorities.
Shiroya had been among four senior NOCK officials accused of an array of charges relating to theft, neglect of duty and abuse of office during the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro last month.
All charges against Shiroya have now been dropped, however, meaning bail fees will be refunded and she will no longer have to report to police every week and stay away from her office.
In return, she is expected to appear as a witness to testify against her colleagues.
This is thought to specifically relates to alleged funds received in reimbursement from official Team Kenya kit manufacturer Nike since the National Olympic Committee began their engagement with them.
Kenyan Sports Minister Hassan Wario formally disbanded the NOCK last month for alleged mismanagement during Rio 2016.
Officials were accused of key accommodation and travel mishaps, including the "mishandling of accreditation", as well as kits which allegedly never reached athletes.
Other problems included a doping scandal in which a coach was expelled from the Olympics for impersonating an athlete, selection issues and tension between Athletics Kenya and NOCK.
"I’m happy to have been cleared because what come out clearly is that I do not own a shop that sells Nike uniforms," Shiroya told Citizen TV.
"It was a malicious allegation and I don’t think it was right because I don’t own a shop."
She is now expected to testify against NOCK first vice-chairman Pius Ochieng, secretary general Francis Kinyili Paul and Rio 2016 Chef de Mission Stephen Arap Soi.
A clear the air meeting was held recently in Lausanne between sporting and Government officials and the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
The IOC ordered the NOCK to immediately convene an Extraordinary General Assembly in order to "address and clarify" issues which arose during Rio 2016.
They must also "review and update the NOCK Constitution currently in force, as necessary, and submit the proposed amendments to the IOC for approval in accordance with the Olympic Charter" before agreeing on a process leading to fresh quadrennial elections.
NOCK chairman Kipchoge Keino, given a special Olympic Laurel award during the Opening Ceremony of Rio 2016, is the only senior official at the national body not to have been directly accused of wrongdoing.
The IOC had threatened the NOCK with suspension if the dispute is not resolved, but a decision on this is not expected to be made until the IOC Executive Board meeting in Lausanne in December.
