Kenyan Sports Minister Hassan Wario is reportedly ready to present a report by the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games Probe Committee to the country’s President Uhuru Kenyatta.

It was claimed earlier this month that the report will allege that officials within Kenya's Sports Ministry embezzled money meant to cover the expenses of the country's Olympic team.

A total of KES870 million (£7 million/$8.4 million/€7.9 million) set aside for air tickets was misappropriated, it has been suggested.

The report also reportedly accuses the National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK) of diverting money and kit from a deal with sports equipment giant Nike.

This was said to be worth KES126 million (£988,000/$1.2 million/€1.1 million) per year since 2013, with the money meant for athletes.

insidethegames revealed earlier this month that the NOCK is receiving $5.7 million (£4.5 million/€5.2 million) as part of an eight-year contract with Nike.

Paul Ochieng, the dean of students at Strathmore University in Nairobi, led the probe which could now lead to criminal charges.

According to allafrica, the report will ask for "strict action" to be taken against NOCK officials and those accused from the Ministry.

Officials were accused of key accommodation and travel mishaps at the Rio 2016 Games, including the "mishandling of accreditation", as well as kits which allegedly never reached athletes.

On Friday (November 25), Kenya's deputy Chef de Mission at the Rio Olympic Games, Ben Ekumbo, was formally charged with the theft of money and kit meant for the African nation’s team.

Others to have been detained include Chef de Mission Stephen Soi, team manager Pius Ochieng, NOCK secretary-general Francis Paul and treasurer Fridah Shiroya.

Charges against Shiroya have since been dropped and it is expected she will now testify against her colleagues.

NOCK chairman Kipchoge Keino, a double Olympic gold medallist, is the organisation's only senior official not to have been arrested.

A meeting of the NOCK reportedly descended into chaos last week with Member Federations rebelling against the leadership and questioning why the members of the Executive Committee had not resigned in the wake of the ongoing scandal.

Several athletes also demonstrated against the NOCK officials, holding placards to show their opposition to the way the debacle had been dealt with.

A timetable for reform has been proposed by the International Olympic Committee, which would culminate in fresh elections and a new constitution before the end of the year.

Keino admitted they were "running out of time" after a number of changes proposed during the meeting, aimed at addressing the needs of the IOC, were deemed unacceptable by the country’s Federations.
