Nick Mwendwa, the president of Football Kenya Federation has been granted Sh7 million bond or a cash bail. The FKF boss will now be able to access his office as well and is barred from accessing it until Wednesday’s ruling on whether he should remain in custody for two weeks while investigations continue with no release date yet set.
The Director Criminal Investigations filed an application requesting 14 days time detention at Gigiri Police Station after Mr Wanyama being arrested last Friday over allegations that were made against him regarding graft cases.
He was taken to the DCI Headquarters where he had been grilled on how FKF spent Sh430 million advanced by Sports, Arts and Social Development for running football activities. Mwendwa also faced questions about what happened with 244 Million extended to prepare Harambee Stars in preparation of 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations which the prosecution says is likely interference if police are not granted orders detaining him at this moment.”
Muteera’s lawyer Eric Mutua opposed application for detention saying state has given no compelling reasons before trial why suspect cannot have bail.
The Court to rule on whether Mwendwa will be granted bond on November 17, 2021.
