The Director of Public Prosecutions has closed its file against suspended FKF President Nick Mwendwa. The DPP had been given seven days to prefer charges, but they chose instead to close it after an investigation lasting one week and leave him at large for another six more days before taking any further action in order not interrupt the football season which is just around corner!
Milimani Senior Resident Magistrate Wandia Nyamu allowed this application by Kenya detectives last Thursday afternoon – ordering that he should stay behind bars until investigations have finished being carried out on top priority matters relating his misdeeds as leader within our Kenyan Football Federation (FKF).
Nyamu, the commissioner for lands who was arrested over mismanagement of public funds disbursed to his federation by government officials has been released with an alternative bond. Nyamu faces five years in prison after being charged with Sh5 million cash bail or one year without it if he fails return within seven days on any given date while still under investigation but is free until then unless charges are preferred against him before that time frame expires which will happen next week at latest according court orders Wednesday last week.”
On Wednesday, a Transitional Constitutional Court in Uganda confirmed that Justice David Wakenya of the High Court had jurisdiction to hear Mwendwa’s case.
The court also directed him not come into contact with any FKF employees unless they have been specifically vetted by security for added protection from threats made against them after he filed his suit last year. In this ruling it was ensured there would be no media attention drawn towards Mr Mwenza until further notice due an understanding on how much scrutiny can do harm during such sensitive times when people are already under attack; additionally all activity related to football will stay put while we await more information about what comes next.
