The top of Kenya’s disbanded public football league showed up in court on Monday over claims of defilement.

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) supervisor Nick Mwendwa has been blamed for moving around 8.5 million Kenyan shillings ($76,000, 66,00 euros) of alliance cash into his own record with practically no documentation to legitimize the move.

Investigators requested that the court keep Mwendwa for 14 days to permit them to finish their examinations, however an officer requested him liberated on bail until one more hearing on Wednesday.

Mwendwa’s court appearance came after the public authority on Thursday suspended the FKF for supposed monetary abnormalities and set up a guardian advisory group to run football in the East African country for no less than a half year.

Sports Minister Amina Mohamed said Thursday an administration examination had observed the organization had neglected to represent reserves gotten from the public authority and different supporters and reported a further test that could prompt indictments.

Mwendwa, 41, who has denied any bad behavior and pronounced he was as yet responsible for the FKF, went through the end of the week in police guardianship following his capture on Friday.

The rule of Mwendwa, who has been FKF president beginning around 2016, has been hounded by discussion and cases of indecency.

Football’s reality administering body FIFA on Sunday again cautioned Kenya it gambled a boycott if the public authority didn’t rethink reestablishing Mwendwa’s group.

FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura said the activity was “without a doubt opposite” to the rule that all FIFA part affiliations should deal with their issues autonomously and without outsider impact.

“The present circumstance could thusly conceivably prompt a suspension of the FKF by FIFA and, in such a case, it would be all of Kenyan football that would endure the side-effects,” she said in a letter to the Kenyan games serve.

The FKF guardian board has suspended all people’s football association exercises for a time of about fourteen days beginning last Friday.
