MP urges President Kenyatta to fire CS Wario over Rio fiasco

31 August 2016, 10:42 Oduor Omondi

Nairobi - Kasipul Kabondo Member of Parliament Silvance Osele has called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to fire Sports Cabinet Secretary Dr. Ali Hasan Wario over the mismanagement of the Kenyan team that took part in the just concluded Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Osele said Dr. Wario must pave way for independent investigations since the scandal was designed and executed under his watch as the CS in charge of sports.

“Wario is the man incharge of the sports docket and the buck stops with him. If he cannot heed to calls for his resignation, then President Uhuru Kenyatta should fire him for embarrassing the country internationally.” Said the youthful MP.

The MP who has joined the growing list of leaders calling for Wario’s dismissal or resignation said firing Wario will set pace for better management of sports in the country, especially the talents that represent the country in international games.

According to MP, the current blame game between the Sports Ministry, National Olympic Committee of Kenya and federations show a complete failure by Wario.

“Wario’s purported disbandment of NOCK is not enough. He cannot absolve himself from the saga. As an indication of his commitment to end wrangles troubling the sports ministry, he should vacate office.” he said.

Speaking during a funds drive to build a classroom at Sango Primary School in North Kamagambo Ward, the MP opined that Wario’s failure started when Kenyan athletes were implicated in doping scandals because of failure by his ministry to put in place rules to comply with World Anti-Doping Agency.
