Global athletics governing body International Association Athletics Federation (IAAF), has appointed Moni Wekesa as a member of the inaugural IAAF Disciplinary Tribunal for a period of two years.

IAAF Chief Executive Officer Oliver Gers said in a signed letter: “The appointment is for a period of two years and will run until the conclusion of the 2019 IAAF congress in late September 2019. Therefore, the IAAF congress will appoint IAAF Disciplinary Tribunal members for a four-year term at each IAAF Congress.”

IAAF said: “As you are aware, the IAAF Disciplinary Tribunal is required under the IAAF constitution to operate independently of the IAAF and the IAAF has appointed Sports Resolution in UK (United Kingdom) to serve as the independent secretariat to the Disciplinary Tribunal”. The Disciplinary Tribunal will play a vital role in safeguarding the integrity.
