Relief to Nick Mwendwa as State Closes His Case
Suspended Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President, Nick Mwendwa now has a reason to smile.
This is after the government closed the case that was levied gains him
According to a court ruling delivered on Thursday, November 25, the state closed Mwendwa's file.
In addition, the court also ordered that the Ksh4 million cash bail he had posted to secure his release be repaid.
This comes after the Prosecution had been given seven days to file charges against the embattled FKF boss, but when it came up for virtual mention, it requested that the subject be closed.
"We seek to close the file as we proceed with investigations at our own pace before we prefer charges against him," the prosecution said.
As a result of the additional information, senior resident magistrate Wandia Nyamu granted the state's plea to close the miscellaneous file.
"I, therefore, order this matter closed as prayed by the DPP, " Wandia stated.
Mwendwa was accused of theft of public funds and abuse of office.
Amina Mohammed, the Sports Cabinet Secretary, also disbanded his team, forming a temporary committee to handle the country's football issues for the next six months.
