Thieves steal computers at AK headquarters

Athletics Kenya's (AK) headquarters at Riadha House was raided on Tuesday night by thugs who stole computers and hard disks containing vital information.

The offices broken into included that of AK chairman, Isaiah Kiplagat and his Secretary, Brenda Oyugi, which were ransacked and turned upside down.

The thieves left the safe in the chairman’s office intact after their effort to break it proved futile.

They left a bunch of keys on top of the safe, which they were using to open the safe. AK’s Secretary General David Okeyo’s office and his Secretary, Mercy Mbuko were also ransacked and the thugs made away with a computer and hard disk said to have contained valuable information on the federation.

The same happened to the statistics office occupied by Mathew Kiptum. Also not spared was Vice Chair Lt Gen (Rtd) Jackson Tuwei’s office.
