The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro earned Kenya six gold and six silver awards and additionally a bronze – the nation’s best decoration count.
Be that as it may, cases of defilement against group managers and government authorities defaced their prosperity.
The charges are the most recent in a progression of corruption investigations in Kenya.

Wario and Kipchoge Keino are to be prosecuted in connection to the Rio Olympics’ scandal. The question is where was the DPP for all that time? DPP Haji should also order prosecution of Tobiko. He was a ghost worker. Kenyans of the same opinion retweet. #MissTourismKenya
