Former Football Kenya Federation chairman Sam Nyamweya is facing trying times after his property in Karen was put up for sale by auctioneers.
An advertisement in a section of the media says the former football chief’s one-acre plot in Karen estate, estimated to be worth Sh100 million, will be sold by Keysian Auctioneers.
“Sale on Wednesday 20th July…. all that property known as LR NO. 10261/3 (I.R NO. 65239) Karen Estate, Nairobi County in the name of Samson Keengu Nyamweya…” the auction notice reads in part.
This is not the first time the land has been advertised for auction. It was advertised in December last year by the same auctioneers.
An official of Keysian Auctioneers said that last year, Mr Nyamweya claimed he had found a buyer and asked to sell the land himself, a request that was granted.
The official added that Nyamweya had defaulted on a loan.
Last year, media outlets reported that I&M Bank had renewed a bid to have Mr Nyamweya declared bankrupt over a Sh1.3 million debt.
Mr Nyamweya was in March 2015 named among public officials under investigation by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) for alleged corruption.
In a separate suit, the former FKF boss was sued by the Monarch Group for Sh6.5 million arising from a botched land deal.
