Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwenda is a free man after a magistrate’s court on Wednesday ruled the charges laid against him as “unfounded and unconstitutional”.

The embattled FKF President faced accusations of misappropriating Sh38 million meant for the development of Kenyan football.

“This court finds that the fair trial of the accused is grossly threatened… the charges are unfounded and unconstitutional,” ruled Kiambu senior principal magistrate Wilson Rading.

Mwendwa was first arrested in November 2021 after the Kenyan government disbanded the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) and set up a caretaker committee to run affairs instead.

In turn, Football’s world governing body FIFA suspended Kenya over government interference in the running of the sport, but later overturned the decision after government reinstated the body. The ruling on Wednesday paves way for Mwenda, who stepped aside and handed over his roles to the FKF vice president Doris Petra, to assume his position.
