Re­struc­ture Nock, fix mis­takes and fo­cus on the fu­ture

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The fact that the par­lia­men­tary com­mit­tee in­ves­ti­gat­ing the Rio Olympics fi­asco sum­moned a jour­nal­ist should not be seen as progress. It was merely a PR gim­mick, a waste of time and re­sources.The Nock chair­man is a world-class retired ath­lete who was hon­oured in Rio. He is a re­spected man. Kenya has a poor his­tory with probe com­mit­tees be­cause they of­ten play a sani­tis­ing role, and this case will be no dif­fer­ent. The fo­cus should be on con­sti­tut­ing a new Nock and learn­ing from the mis­takes as the clock ticks to­wards the PyeongChang Olympics.
