Protestors barricade Athletics Kenya offices for second day

24 November 2015, 14:14

Nairobi - Protesting Kenyan athletes camped for the second day inside the Athletics Kenya headquarters Tuesday, accusing officials of corruption and demanding doping allegations be properly investigated.

The protestors include former world marathon record holder Wilson Kipsang, who is also the chairman of the Professional Athletes Association of Kenya (PAAK), and the 2012 Boston marathon winner-turned politician, Wesley Korir.

The athletes and sports ministry officials held talks Tuesday to try to end the standoff.

"We want to solve the long standing issues affecting us in regards to corruption, doping and other matters," said top PAAK official Julius Ndegwa.

"We are waiting for the outcome of the meeting...we were taken by complete surprise," said Athletics Kenya (AK) chief Jackson Tuwei.

Tuwei and the other AK officials have been barred from their offices since Monday morning.
