Kenya official found ‘hiding under bed’ before Rio 2016 corruption arrest

The head of Kenya’s swimming federation, Ben Ekumbo, was reportedly found hiding under a bed before being arrested as part of the country’s inquiry into missing money and equipment following Rio 2016.

Ekumbo, who is also the vice-president of Kenya’s Olympic committee, is the fifth senior official to be arrested as part of the inquiry. Police officers allegedly found boxes of Nike running shoes and unused Kenya uniforms that were supposed to be for athletes at the Games. Investigators are looking into a report that senior officials stole more than £6.4m in expenses and equipment.
