Nick Mwendwa Freed Without Charges

Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa has been released.

The state has closed Nick Mwendwa’s miscellaneous file without prefered charges against him.

Milimani Senior Resident Magistrate Wandia Nyamu ordered Ksh 4 Million cash bail to be refunded to him.

Earlier, the court declined an application by the prosecution to detain him for 14 days at Gigiri police station pending the ongoing investigations in the misuse of public funds.

While dismissing the application by the Prosecution she said that it was not in good faith to seek another 14 days to continue holding Mwendwa in police cells without a holding charge.

She accused the prosecution of being on a fishing expedition when they arrested and detained Mwendwa over the weekend without having a complete probe of the matter.

The court ordered Mwendwa to remain on Ksh 7M bond with Ksh 4M cash bail and abid with all the bond terms imposed by the court on Monday.
