Kenya's Rio Olympic Games manager Stephen Soi was charged Wednesday with four counts of stealing more than 25 million shillings ($250,000 dollars) destined for athletes and officials in Brazil.

Soi, who denied the charges, is the National Olympic Committee of Kenya's assistant secretary.

Kenyan prosecutors said Soi stole the money which had been entrusted to him by Athletics Kenya "for purposes of making payments towards the accommodation of Kenyan athletes and officials during the Rio Olympics in Brazil."
