ON KENYAN ATHLETES- MATCH UP OR QUIT THREATENING

When you just think that enough has happened to warrant intelligent discourse, just then you get slapped with some remark the exhibits ignorance at it's best.The beef..Hon Ochillo Ayako.

What do you mean you will deport all Kenyan athletes who take up an offer to run for a different country, plus change their citizenship? Can you explain that to me because it seems you are living in the bundus or something. Mheshimiwa, tuliza boli. They say that in Sheng.Find out what it means.

Your threat was unnerving. I am so angry about that statement you made. Aren't you working with your PRO on what to say in public and it's implications? You sure need to just like all the rest of your colleagues who seem overwhelmed by their appointments more than two years after elections.

When you say that athletes will be deported, Mheshimiwa, you are not being honest. You are not being a true patriot. You are also not being a witty manager.

Have you wondered why we are losing so many? In your private moments have deeply consulted sincerely within yourself and wondered what the heck is happening? Have you taken a step further and thought,"hmmm!!! how do we sought out this mess?" ?Have you? If you haven't then kindly sir, don't comment. As far as l know, you haven't sat with these athletes and asked them personally why they are leaving. Changing citizenship is not a smiling matter.These athletes have thought seriously about it.They know the implications.

Hon Ochillo, you remind me of managers who when they have people leaving their offices for greener pastures, don't question why. They sit there thinking,"hmmm!!! too bad we'll just get someone else." They forget that a high turnover indicates flaws in the management. It also indicates that critical needs are not being met.

It is shameful that Kenya has to train it's athletes and then someone else enjoys the fruits of our hard work. Aibu kubwa sana!!! Why can't we work at retaining our athletes Mheshimiwa? If they are getting the money from elsewhere, why can't we simply become competitive by matching up? Haven't we thought that Kenya can actually poach sports people? Why do these tables keep turning on us? Why can't we turn them? And NO!!! don't tell me Kenya doesn't have the ability. You can't say that while your salaries and incentives are abnormal plus your garis are over 10million bobs. NO!!!

To say you are deporting them Sir, is to bury your head in the sand. Kenya has the ability to retain it's athletes and it must retain them.

If you satisfy the athletes, you will never have trouble retaining them. That my dear Sir, is what other countries have learnt and put to use effectively.
