Ronaldinho Visits Kenya amid Controversy

NAIROBI Retired Brazil soccer great Ronaldinho arrived on Friday to do promotion for a chain of betting shops, making Kenya the fourth country he has visited since a Brazilian court ordered his passport seized for failing to pay a $2.7 million fine.

The 38-year-old landed in Nairobi a week after a court in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul revoked his passport and that of brother for defaulting on the fine.

Ronaldinho, who will have to surrender his passport when he returns to Brazil, declined to discuss the case.

In February 2015, Ronaldinho and brother Roberto Assis were fined 8.5 million reais ($2.27 million) after their construction company built in an environmentally protected area.

Brazilian media report that Ronaldinho has only 5 reais ($1.34) in his bank account in Brazil.

With his arrival in Kenya, Ronaldinho has now traveled to four countries on three different continents since the court decision. His previous stops were in Japan, France and Morocco, according to the posts on his social media accounts.

During his stay here, Ronaldinho will take part in the opening of several betting shops and offer advice to aspiring soccer players.
