According to our source, Nick was on his way to the Nairobi Central Business District for personal business.

Nick Mwendwa’s lawyer Eric Mutua said, “It is true that Mwendwa (Nick) has been arrested and is at the DCI headquarters. We are proceeding there as we speak.”
A week ago, CS Amina Mohamed held a consultative meeting with FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura to find a lasting solution to FKF problems.
Nick is being accused of embezzling public funds, something that led to the disbandment of FKF.
Interestingly, DPP’s failure to present charges against Mwendwa left Milimani Senior Principal Magistrate Wandia Nyamu with no option but to ask DPP to close the accused person’s file.
During the mentioning of the case on Thursday, DPP’s team said, “We seek to close the file for the time being as we proceed with investigations before we prefer charges against him.”
