Nick Mwendwa: Case Against Football Kenya Federation President Closed

A Kenyan court has freed the country's football chief who was arraigned last week over allegations of corruption.

Police arrested Nick Mwendwa, president of the Football Federation of Kenya (FKF), earlier this month after the sports ministry announced that a caretaker committee would run the federation for six months while authorities investigated allegations of financial irregularities during his tenure.

He was freed on bail after his arraignment last week, pending a police investigation into the allegations of corruption. He was not charged.

"Football Kenya Federation wishes to inform FKF members and the general public that the court has today, 25 November 2021, closed the case against Nick Mwendwa following the failure by the state to prefer charges against him," the FKF said in a statement.

"The FKF president is grateful for the due process and will continue to work towards ensuring that football in Kenya returns to normalcy."

"My client was freed today after the state failed to prefer any criminal charges against him and the file closed," Mwendwa's lawyer, Erick Mutua, told Reuters.

"The court also ordered a bail of 4 million shillings ($35,620) be returned to my client."
