Besieged FKF President Nick Mwendwa Arrested

BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,12TH NOV 2021-Under fire Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa has been arrested.

Mwendwa was picked up by plainclothes police officers at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Westlands, Nairobi on Friday afternoon and taken for grilling at the DCI headquarters.

He was reportedly meeting Harambee Stars players ahead of a match between Kenya-Rwanda next week.

Mwenda’s arrest over suspected irregularities at FKF comes a day after Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed disbanded the federation and formed a 15-member caretaker committee.

Justice (Rtd.) Aaron Ringera was appointed to chair the committee whose six-month mandate includes conducting all the FKF affairs.

The move follows recommendations by an inspection committee she formed to investigate the national football organization that is facing allegations of administrative corruption.
