FKF boss Nick Mwendwa is free: graft case closed, his KSh4m returned

In Summary

  • Senior resident magistrate Wandia Nyamu ordered that Nick Mwendwa’s Sh4 million cash bail be refunded to him.

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president Nick Mwendwa can now rest easy after the state failed to prefer graft charges against him, therefore closing the case on Thursday, November 25.

“We seek to close the file as we proceed with investigations at our own pace before we prefer charges against him,” the prosecution told the court.

Senior Resident Magistrate Wandia Nyamu, consequently, ordered that Mwendwa’s KSh4 million cash bail be refunded to him.

Magistrate Nyamu had declined an application by the prosecution to detain Mwendwa for 14 days pending the ongoing investigations into alleged misappropriation of funds amounting to millions of shillings at FKF.

Mwendwa had his bond terms extended for seven days by the magistrate who ordered the state to file charges against him within the same period, failure to which, he’d be released unconditionally.

Nick Mwendwa’s arrest

Mwendwa’s woes began when a damning report by a special committee constituted by Sports CS Amina Mohamed revealed that FKF could not account for more than KSh500 million allocated to it by the government.

CS Amina proceeded to disband the federation and appointed a caretaker team that is currently running football affairs in the country.
