End of an era: Nick Mwendwa finally bows to pressure and resigns

FKF president Nick Mwendwa has finally called it quits with the federation after series of arrest by the anti corruption commission. In a terse letter to National Executive Committee members, Mwendwa announced he had since asked his deputy, Doris Petra to assume all functions of the FKF President.

The letter shows he quit on Monday 29th, the day he was presented in court to answer graft charges. Mwendwa was barred yesterday to for the second time in weeks from accessing his office after being charged of defrauding the federation over sh38 million.

“While I am confident I will be cleared of any wrong doing in the end, I have today in accordance with Article 42 (8) of the FKF constitution (2017) asked my Vice President Madam Doris Petra to assume all functions of the FKF president,” the letter says.

It was a bad day for Mwendwa who had hoped to stop the charges but senior principal magistrate Eunice Nyutu dismissed his application, opening the way for the charges of fraudulent acquisition of public property and conspiracy to commit a corruption offence.
