Kenya FA President Nick Mwendwa Charged With USD 337,000 Corruption-Related Cases

Embattled Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president Nick Mwendwa has been charged with four counts of corruption related to Ksh 38 million ($337,200).

Appearing before Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Eunice Nyutu, Mwendwa refused to take plea saying his rights have been violated by the police and Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).

The offences are alleged to have been committed between March and May this year.

Mwendwa will spend another night behind bars and will be there until Tuesday at 2:30 PM awaiting magistrate’s ruling on whether to admit the charge sheet against him.

Mwendwa was re-arrested on Friday over mismanagement of public funds disbursed to the federation by the government.

He was first arrested and detained at Director Criminal Investigations (DCI) on November 12 over corruption allegations at FKF.

Last Thursday, Mwendwa was set free by the court after the state prosecution asked for the closure of his file.

State Prosecutor Everlyn Omunga said they were seeking the court’s permission to have the file temporarily closed as the investigation over allegations of financial misappropriation continued.

The court accepted the prosecution’s pleadings and consequently closed the file and ordered the matter closed as prayed by the DPP.

The court returned Mwendwa’s Kshs 4 million (approximately $36,000) bail money before the police stated that the fraud case was not over.

Mwendwa spent the weekend at Gigiri police cells where he was on Saturday picked from for further statement recording and taken back.
