Kenya's top football official to be detained for 14 days amid corruption investigation

(Reuters) - A Kenyan court on Monday allowed police to detain Nick Mwendwa, president of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF), for 14 days to allow for an investigation into allegations of corruption.

Police arrested Mwendwa on Friday, the day after the sports ministry announced a caretaker committee would run the federation for six months while authorities investigate allegations of financial irregularities during his tenure.
