By PSCU/Rose Welimo

President Uhuru Kenyatta has signed Anti-Doping (Amendment) Bill 2016 into law.

This clears the way for the World Anti-Doping Agency to review Kenya’s compliance with its code.

Wada’s compliance committee had ruled that Kenya was “non-compliant” when its board met in Montreal on May this year, citing issues related to the anti-doping legislation.

“We look forward to WADA’s review and declaration of Kenya as compliant with existing rules,” said the President.

“Kenya has always supported clean sport and will continue to do so,” he added.

Present during the signing were the Sports Cabinet Secretary Hassan Wario, Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi, Chairman of the Kenyan Olympic Committee Kipchoge Keino  and  Solicitor General Njee Muturi among other senior Government officials.
