A Nairobi court has released FKF President Nick Mwendwa on a Sh4 million cash bail or Sh7 million bond with two sureties.

The court on Monday barred Mwendwa from accessing the FKF offices or interfering with workers.

Earlier, the prosecution had sought to have him detained for 14 days to complete investigations into alleged graft.

The prosecution argued that Mwendwa was likely to interfere with investigations if he was not detained.

The defence lawyer Eric Mutua opposed the application on grounds that the prosecution did not give compelling reasons for pretrial detention.

The Court will rule on whether Mwendwa will be granted bond on November 17.
