FKF President Nick Mwendwa arrested

The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwendwa has been arrested.

Mwendwa was whisked to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters Friday evening.

At the time of writing this report, the police had not communicated the reasons for Mwendwa’s arrest.

On Thursday evening, Mwendwa tried to access FKF offices at Kandanda house but was barred by the police guarding the gate.

The embattled Mwendwa was suspended Thursday, November 11, 2021 from FKF by Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed pending investigation over embezzlement of public funds amounting to Ksh.240 million.

CS Amina has since appointed a caretaker committee chaired by retired Justice Aaron Ringera for a six-month period.

Mwendwa’s arrest comes hours after Ringera grounded all top-tier football leagues countrywide for two weeks.

Ringera says the move is to ensure “regularization of the league activities across the country.”
