  • Mwendwa and his team have been put to task to account for Sh244 million received from government to prepare Harambee Stars for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt
  • Other funds received by Fifa to the tune of Sh100 million each year, are channelled towards payment of staff salaries and PAYE at a cost of Sh7 million a month

Four years after Nicholas Kithuku Mwendwa was elected Football Kenya Federation (FKF) president, all indicators suggest he is beginning to feel the strain that comes with the responsibilities of this role.
