Nick Mwendwa has returned as the presidency of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) after being removed by Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed, who requested a probe into the federation’s finances.
Mwendwa notified FIFA President Gianni Infantino in a letter dated Thursday, September 8, that he had resumed his duties as Kenya’s football body’s president. This following the withdrawal of charges leveled against him by the DCI.
“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 Directorate 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),” he wrote to FIFA.
The Football Kenya Federation was inspected by the Registrar of Sports on October 14, 2021, per instructions from Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed.
She also put together a 15-person caretaker committee led by retired judge Aaron Ringera to run the organization for six months while investigations were ongoing.
As a result of the ruling, FIFA put a halt to football playing international, preventing Kenya from competing in any regional or international tournaments.
