Kenya Rugby union has vehemently opposed the shortlisting of prof Moni Wekesa for the scheduled interview of the chief justice of the republic of Kenya.
According to a memo released by the Kenya rugby union, they stated a number of reasons why Moni Wekesa was unfit to hold the top judicial office in the land.
Amongst the reasons stated were his reluctance to investigate the allegations into abuse of performance enhancing drugs and substances abuse by Kenyan athletes and make necessary recommendations when he was serving as the chair of the Kenya Anti-Doping Taskforce by former sports minister Hassan Wario.
In the report, it was indicated that the food supplements being used by the Kenya Rugby Sevens team apply banned substances, contravening both World Rugby and KRU regulations.
The contents of the report were however dismissed by the Kenya Rugby Union since it was a product of flawed process.
“Prof. Wekesa would lead the public attempt, especially on media to justify the report despite KRU’s immediate protestation and challenge of the flawed process used.” Read part of the statement by KRU.
Further, they took offence with Moni Wekesa’s sentiments which claimed that she made the following statement: “In rugby, at the national team level and at two of the clubs there appears to be systematic doping of players through the use of food supplement laced with steroids.
