Nick Mwendwa, Former FKF President Arrested

Former Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president Nick Mwendwa has been arrested.

His arrest comes a day after the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) dropped corruption charges leveled against him.

ODPP said they are exploring alternative charges to prefer against him.

The Former FKF boss is said to have been taken to DCI headquarters off Kiambu road.

Sources told Nairobi Leo that Mwendwa will be presented at the Kiambu Law Courts to face new charges.

Mwendwa was on trial on a charge of conspiracy to defraud the federation of Sh38 million.

His trial, however, failed to take off.

The prosecution on several occasions sought adjournment because witnesses were not ready to take to the stand.

Mwendwa had been arrested in December 2021 and charged with conspiracy to defraud the federation of Sh38 million.

He was consequently forced to step down as the president of FKF. 

And on Wednesday, the prosecution told the court they were yet to record witness statements before the case was dismissed.
