Mwendwa was further barred from accessing the FKF office, attending any football activities or conducting any media interviews in the interim.

Embattled Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa has been released on a Ksh 7 million bond with two sureties or a cash bail of Ksh 4 million following his arraignment at the Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi on Monday 15 November 2021. 

Mwendwa was further barred from accessing the FKF office, attending any football activities or conducting any media interviews in the interim.

The 42 year old is currently serving his second term at the helm of the body mandated to run football in Kenya, having first been elected to office in 2016 before being re-elected in 2020.

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.
