Sports CS Hassan Wario has been served a dose of his own medicine.

The National Olympics Committee of Kenya officials led by their Chairman Kipchoge Keino want CS Wario to explain to court why he took the action of disbanding the committee without hearing them first.

They also want the high court to quash the directive.

Kipchoge says that the move was unreasonable and in bad faith and it shows improper and poor management of sports in the country.

He also says that CS Wario places Kenya at loggerheads with the International Olympic Committee which move will make Kenya be banned from participating in the future Olympic games

CS Wario’s directive was based on unsubstantiated allegations of malpractice, he says.

That the CS does not have powers under sports Act 2013 or any other law to unilaterally disband Nock or any other sports federation

They also accused the CS of embarking on an unreasonable campaign of harassment through unnecessary use of police and security mechanism with the intention of unlawfully crippling the affairs and administration of NOCK

Other officials who are part of the suit are FK Paul and Fridah Shiroya.
