A possible Fifa ban for Kenya looms after embattled Football Kenya Federation (FKF)President Nick Mwendwa has been arrested,
Mwendwa is currently at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations headquarters along Kiambu road where he is being grilled by detectives, the National Police Service spokesperson Bruno Shioso has confirmed.
“He (Nick Mwendwa) is at Mazingira House where our detectives are interrogating him. We shall release a statement later,” Shioso said.
Sources indicate Mwendwa was picked up on Friday, November 12th, 2021 by six men in civilian clothes at a Nairobi hotel in the upmarket Milimani estate where he was meeting Kenya’s national football players in preparation for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Rwanda.
A letter by Kenny Jean Marie, Fifa’s Head of member associations, addressed to FKF general secretary Barry Otieno has, however, appeared to indicate the sport’s world governing body is ready to mediate an impasse between Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed and FKF officials, led by Mwendwa.
