Suspended Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwendwa has resumed his duties 11 months after he was kicked out of office.

In a letter to FIFA President Gianni Infantino, Mwendwa said the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) had withdrawn abuse of office charges against him.

"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 Director 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)," the letter dated Thursday, September 8 read in part.

Mwendwa charged

Mwendwa was charged on November 31, 2021 with four counts of economic crime offences relating to the loss over Ksh38 million at the federation.

He pleaded to the charges after Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Eunice Nyutu rejected his attempt to block his prosecution.

He denied four charges including conspiracy to defraud and fraudulent acquisition of property. 

In July 6, 2022, he was freed due to a lack of evidence before he was rearrested two days later after DPP Noordin Haji told the court he had found new evidence to prosecute him afresh.
