Amidst the drama surrounding National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOC-K) and Kenyan athletes at Rio Olympics, people with no meaningful responsibilities during the games have been spotted having quite the blast in Brazil.
Over the weekend, World javelin champion Julius Yego took issue with Noc-K over what he termed as irresponsible travelling arrangement involving his coach Joseph Mosonik.
Worse still, hours after the rant, Julius Yego’s ticket went missing under unclear circumstances, prompting Team Kenya athletes to boycott boarding a plane to Rio de Janeiro.
Yego questioned NOC-K’s priorities saying people with no meaningful responsibilities were booked to leave the country in advance and given accommodation while those who mattered left behind.
On Monday, Kenyans were further angered when a photo of Kiminini Member of Parliament Chris Wamalwa surfaced online as he partied away in Rio in the company of an unidentified caucasian woman. The MP denied he is in Rio, evening showing up for a morning TV interview on Tuesday.
He said the picture is photoshopped, but some Kenyans are not buying that.
