Kenya vows 'no mercy' for track manager expelled from Rio

Kenya's track and field manager has been recalled from Rio Olympics after he was secretly filmed apparently offering to protect athletes from the drugs testing authorities.

"The immediate action we are taking is to call the team manager back so we can investigate further his role in this", Bosire is quoted as saying.

Kenya's government is promising to show "no mercy" looking into the allegations, which come just three days after Kenya was declared compliant with the World Anti-doping Agency code, following a non-compliant verdict in May. Permission to use quotations from this article is granted subject to appropriate credit being given to www.theeagleonline.com.ng as the source. It read: "You know what?" The Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya said it would look into the report, while the Kenyan sports minister questioned why allegations stemming from a secret recording earlier this year were published after the Olympics began. Rotich, a track and field official in Kenya's Rift Valley region that produces the bulk of the nation's long-distance runners, isn't meant to be in the loop about who will be tested and when.

"The reason we send him home isn't on disciplinary grounds, but to spare integrity", Team Kenya's Chief of Mission Stephen Soi said. You're already loser on this jealousy on Kenyans.

Kenya recently headlined the news over doping allegations and this new revelation is expected to cast a shadow on the east African country that has 50 athletes including reserves who are now in the Rio Olympics.

ARD reporter Hajo Seppelt posted on Twitter a statement about Rotich from Athletics Kenya announcing his immediate recall from the Games and promising he will face an investigation into "very serious allegations". "We can not just sweep it under the carpet". We will have no mercy on anyone who is suspected of doping.
