A number of athletes have been summoned by the DCI to record statements over claims the olympic team was mismanaged. Among them is javelin great Julius Yego
World javelin hero Julius Yego and a host of other athletes have been summoned to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to record statements over the mismanagement of the Olympic team to the recently concluded Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
Reports indicate that Yego and his colleagues have been required to record what they know about the mess that befell Olympians who were representing the country.
Yego has been in the forefront castigating the manner in which the team was prepared for the games, and has accused the officials responsible of corruption and mismanagement.
It can also be remembered that Yego almost missed his flight to Rio when his ticket mysteriously went missing.
Athletes who remained in Brazil after the close of the ceremony are also living in slums in the Brailian capital.
The photos and videos of the deplorable conditions were shared by their team leader Wesley Korir, MP for Cherangany.
The summoning comes a day after Sports Cabinet Secretary Hassan Wario disbanded the National Olympics Committee (NOC) over the said mismanagement.
NOC has been accused of mismanaging the preparation, and even flowing unnecessary groups to Brazil.
The situation was said to be so worse that Deputy President William Ruto had to fly to Brazil to boost the athletes’ morale.
Despite the shoddy preparations, Kenya did well by bagging six gold, six silver and two bronze medals, ranking it top in Africa.
Yego won silver after suffering an ankle injury.
