According to The Star the Boxing Association of Kenya president John Kameta has called for the sacking of Sports Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Hassan Wario.

A call was made to other federations who have been neglected by the Government.

The men’s volleyball team had not been able to attend the Olympic qualifiers in Congo while the female team had been forced to pull out of the Olympic semi’s against Egypt in Cameroon last month.

We can’t allow this government to kill sports that we have been struggling to develop,” Kameta said.

He said the team has suffered greatly due to lack of support.

The team have been struggling to train since January 21 until the National Olympic Committee of Kenya offered to fund their residential camp at Jamhuri Park in Nairobi.
