DPP withdraws case against ousted FKF President Nick Mwendwa

by Wakili Liam

The office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) has withdrawn the case against former Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwendwa in accordance with Section 87 of the Penal Code.

Mwendwa, who was first arrested on November 14 last year before he was released and re-arrested again on charges of fraud, has been battling to clear his name in court.

He was kicked out of office with his entire National Executive Committee in November last year by Sports  Cabinet Secretary  Amina Mohamed when she appointed a Caretaker Committee to run the affairs of the federation.

Kenya has since been suspended by Fifa for government interference.


Nick Mwendwa was initially arrested on November 12, spent a weekend behind bars but was released on a bail of four-million -shilling as investigations continued.
