KTN Prime Full Bulletin Sports 31st March 2016 - Anti-doping bill

31, Mar 2016

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.
