FKF President Nick Mwendwa has been re-arrested and is being held at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations Headquarters.

FKF CEO Barry Otieno confirmed that the embattled FKF boss was re-arrested by detectives just a day after the state dropped corruption charges against him.

Nick Mwendwa was initially arrested on November 12, spent a weekend behind bars but was released on a bail of Ksh4m as investigations continued.

Nairobi magistrate Wandia Nyamu dismissed the case after prosecutors, who had applied for 7 days to enable them to conduct investigations, sought to close the file against him.

"I therefore order this matter closed," Nyamu said, ordering that 42-year-old Mwendwa be refunded his bail payment.
