Through a carefully written letter, Mwendwa announced his resignation and handed over his duties to his vice president, Doris Petra.
One of his reasons, Nick Mwendwa said the deteriorating state of his business empires. Especially triggered by the numerous apprehensions and numerous fines pushed him.
He also added that his family has suffered adverse effects due to the cases of apprehension and prosecution.
He said these forced him to tender his resignation letter in the wee hours of the night.
‘’In light of the foregoing, specifically, the frequent apprehension and detentions, which have adversely affected my family and personal business and whilst I am confident I will be cleared of any wrongdoing in the end,’’ he stated.
He added saying VP Doris Petra should assume all functions of the FKF president. He further made it clear that his resignation fed the interests of the FKF.
‘’I want to thank the entire NEC family, for the support you have offered my office and the federation in general, in developing Kenyan football,’’ the letter reads in part.
Earlier on, they had charged Nick Mwendwa with four counts of fraud after they cuffed him for the second time last week and arraigned in court. The total amount of the money he and his colleagues were accused of defrauding FKF is about Kshs 38 million.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges, having failed to have the case against him dismissed. According to the police documents, the offenses took place between 4 March and 31 May 2021.
