KTN Prime Full Bulletin Sports 31st March 2016 - Anti-doping bill
The 11th parliament went on recess Thursday leaving sports men and women in the country unsure of their Rio Olympics participation due to the pending national anti-doping bill. The draft bill that was ratified by the world anti-doping agency was tabled in parliament on Wednesday for the first reading pending the 2nd and 3rd reading. With parliament going on a one week break, Kenya will not beat the 5th April deadline set by Wada. Kenya was initially set to comply with the world anti-doping agency by February but requested for an extension that was granted. A ban now looms, and although it’s not definite that Kenya will miss the 2016 Rio Olympics the sports federations are not settled.
