He was further barred from accessing the FKF Secretariat at Kandanda House, publishing the matter in the media or contacting witnesses directly or indirectly (through proxies).

Nick Mwendwa has been released on a KSh 15 million bond or a cash bail of Ksh 10 million ahead of his pre-trial hearing on Monday 20 December 2021.  

The beleaguered FKF boss pleaded not guilty to four counts fraud, a day after declining to take a plea citing an infringement of his rights.

Eunice Nyutu, the Senior Principal Magistrate at the MIlimani Courts instructed Mwendwa to deposit his passport with the court.

He was further barred from accessing the FKF Secretariat at Kandanda House, publishing the matter in the media or contacting witnesses directly or indirectly (through proxies).

His administration has been under increased scrutiny over its management style, particularly financial and governance issues that came to a head on Thursday 11 November 2021 when Kenya's Cabinet Secretary for Sports - Amina Mohamed, upon receiving the report of a Government sponsored probe on the organization, disbanded the FKF, replacing it with a Caretaker Committee under the leadership of retired judge Aaron Ringera.
