Either we're still in April 1st or some prankster was playing one on me, according to unconfirmed reports, the victorious Brazilian national team was scheduled to visit the country for a couple of commitments including a luncheon at the famed Carnivore Restaurant.Well, I'll hold my breath for now and wait for further confirmations but I thought there would be at least one of the teams from the Confederations Cup making a stop-over at the hub of East and Central Africa. Guess we're not up to it yet...
But despite this, there seems to be some under-currents with the officials wrangles simmering quietly. This was brought about by the candidature and subsequent election of David Okeyo-the current Secretary General and now Vice-Chair National Olympics Committee of Kenya-NOCK. The latter is a powerful sports body in the country drawing affiliation to the International Olympics Committee which is almost any sports official's dream to manage.
