CS Amina faults Mwendwa’s entry into Kandanda House

Cabinet Secretary for Sports, Heritage and Culture Amina Mohamed has faulted Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa’s decision to enter Kandanda House earlier today, September 20.

Mwendwa led several FKF officials including Doris Petra, the vice president of the FKF, Secretary General Barry Otieno, and Michael Kamure, the head of integrity for the FKF, among others to the Goal Project at Kandanda House in Kasarani, more than ten months after they were ejected.

In a press statement, CS Amina maintained her support of the decision to hound Mwendwa from the offices.

On November 11, 2021, CS Mohamed forced Mwendwa and the other FKF National Executive Members from of their positions following an audit on the federation’s accounts that allegedly revealed financial mismanagement.

Mwendwa claimed in a letter dated November 29 and written to the FKF NEC that he had delegated his responsibilities to his deputy Petra in an effort to clear his name after being accused of four counts of fraud in court.

Prior to its transformation into the Transition Committee, Mohamed appointed the FKF Caretaker Committee for an initial six-month term. On August 16, Amina extended the Transition Committee’s duration by two months.

The Committee’s future is not yet known because FKF intends to run again.

Mwendwa was repeatedly detained and accused of fraud, but on July 6 the case was dropped in accordance with Section 87 of the Penal Code.

A day later, Mwendwa would be charged again at Kiambu Law Courts by the Director of Public Prosecutions, but the FKF boss would obtain a court order from the High Court prohibiting any further charges against him.

On September 9, Mwendwa wrote to Fifa President Gianni Infantino to let him know that he was prepared to resume his duties after taking a break to handle his issues.

The date for the decision regarding the legality and constitutionality of the new charges brought against Mwendwa has been set for September 21 by Lady Justice Esther Maina.

“Reference is made to my letter dated November 29, 2021 with regard to the interim transfer of my powers and responsibilities as FKF President to the FKF Vice president.”

“In this regard, following the withdrawal of charges by the Director of Public Prosecution on July 8, 2022, I hereby wish to inform your good office that I have resumed my duties as the FKF president, with immediate effect, in accordance with Article 42 of the FKF constitution (2017),” said Mwendwa in the letter to Infantino.

Whether the Ministry will head to court to find a solution to the matter remains to be seen. For now, Mwendwa and his team are taking charge, indicating that the men’s FKF football league, will resume next month.
