What we should be receiving back is the transparent reports on the findings of identified authentic doctors and testing laboratories, to say specifically what banned substances were found in the food supplements,” Muthee charged.”The supplements are manufactured by a South African company of world repute – Evox Advanced Nutrition – and if found illegal, with all the evidence, Wekesas committee should be assisting the KRU to seek answers from the manufacturers.””We would also expect the onus to be on Professor Wekesas committee to point a finger to the suppliers doing illegal business in the country and for Government to close down and punish them. KRU does not condone illegal drug use and will not defend anyone doing so,” the rugby boss added in his terse assessment of the report.”KRU officials were co-operative and agreed to stop it. They even handed over the supplements and we plan to destroy the same,” Wekesa said of rugby in his report.”Now, that is sensationally untrue and quite outrageous and it is incredible to think that the Committee actually said this. It is simply erroneous.””The KRU has its Medical Advisors and it is only they who can rebut the purported accusations of rugby using banned substances.”To get to the bottom of the matter, there must be honest back and forth communication between Wekesas committee and sports associations backed with medical and scientific findings from bona fide practitioners,” Muthee countered.The Union boss cautioned against blanket blacklisting of sporting disciplines without conclusive investigations as it would harm the reputation of majority of clean sportspersons.”We would like it to be the same in our country. Causing blanket suspicion should not be the way to conduct business by any authority entrusted with a genuine fight against banned substances,” he added.Wekesas report singled out rugby and football as the disciplines in the country where banned substance use was common.His report went light on athletics that has witnessed 17 Kenyan runners banned in 12 months saying most of the culprits doped by mistake due to lack of proper advice whilst seeking medication for common ailments.Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Hassan Wario, pledged to act on the report after the Government commissioned a probe into drug abuse in Kenyan sport following World Anti-Doping Authority threat to blacklist the nations athletes after a spike in positive tests last November.Posted in: Rugby/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 859497;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = http:// + disqus_shortname +;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes/channel_right.html”);load_file(“/includes/footer.html”);$(document).ready(function($){$(“#channel-list .row-content”).each(function(){  if($(this).children().length==1){$(this).children().css(width,100%);}
