Embattled Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President, Nick Mwendwa, has been arrested.

According to sources, Mwendwa was picked by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) at the Safari Park hotel on the afternoon of Friday, November 12.

The FKF boss had gone to the hotel to pay a courtesy call to the Harambee Stars team that had just jetted in from Kampala, Uganda.

Mwendwa is facing accusations of abuse of office, mismanaging the federation and misuse of taxpayers’ money.

On Thursday, November 11, Mwendwa responded to Sports Cabinet Secretary (CS) Amina Mohamed’s order to disband his team. 

Speaking at a Nairobi hotel, Mwendwa stated that he had no plans to relinquish his position as the in-charge of football in the country.

“As FKF, we reject this committee. We rebuke it, and we will not accept it. No committee will take charge of Harambee Stars. FKF will be in charge,” the ousted manager stated. 

He insisted that the Sports CS had no capacity to disband the body given that they had been elected. As such, Mwendwa said that he and the committee would continue serving until the world football governing body, FIFA, gives its statement on the same.

The FKF president further stated that the disbandment of the federation did not come as a surprise owing to recent friction between CS Amina and the federation. He went on to accuse the CS of trying to micro-manage football in the country.
