Nick Mwendwa, the embattled FKF Chair, is set to regain his freedom just days after the Federation of Kenya Football (FKF) officials led by Nick Mwendwa were ousted from office and imprisoned following charges of public funds theft.
Today, FKF President Nick Mwendwa appeared in court in the afternoon following his re-arrest last Friday.
Nick Mwendwa will remain in police detention for one more night, till November 30, pending a decision on his application to be released from graft charges.
He was hauled before Senior Principal Magistrate Eunice Nyutu of the Anti-Corruption Court, who ordered him detained until Tuesday afternoon, when she would rule on the matter or admit the charge sheet.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), which interrogated him throughout the weekend, has proposed three counts of illegal acquisition of public property and one count of conspiracy to conduct a corruption offense.
Mwendwa's lawyers, led by former Law Society of Kenya president Eric Mutua, filed a court complaint alleging that Mwendwa's rights had been infringed upon during his second detention.
