Nick Mwendwa Resigns as FKF president

Besieged Nick Mwendwa has formally resigned as Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president.

The troubled Mwendwa, in a letter addressed to FKF’s National Executive Committee dated November 29, explained he had arrived at the decision to transfer the functions of FKF president to his deputy Doris Petra.

“In light of the foregoing, specifically the arrests and detention, which have adversely affected my family and personal business and whilst I’m confident of being cleared of any wrongdoing, in the end, I have today, in accordance with Article 42 (8) of the FKF constitution asked my vice president madam Doris Petra to assume all functions of the president.” Nick Mwendwa wrote.

Mwendwa’s letter appointing Petra as president comes hours after he was charged in court with four counts of fraud, and released on  Sh10 million bail. He is reported to have walked to freedom at about 7:30 pm Tuesday.

Legal issues are bound to arise from this letter considering Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed recently disbanded FKF in accordance with the Sports Act.

Nick Mwendwa was further slapped with stringent bail terms, including depositing his passport in court, not accessing the FKF office, plus not offering media interviews in relation to the case for its duration.
