National taekwondo team coach Linus Murangu was Sunday left out of team that left the country for 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games in Japan Before the departure, Murangu accused the National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOC-K) and some officials of the KTF of denying him the chance to travel with the team for the Olympics, despite the Sports Disputes Tribunal (SDT) ordering otherwise.
In the ruling issued on July 9 and seen by Nation Sport, the Tribunal reinstated Murangu as the coach of Taekwondo 2020 Olympic’s team and ordered NOC-K to give him full access of the camp and team. NOC-K was also ordered to provide him with necessary documents so that he can travel with the team for the Games.
In further quashed letters from Sumba and KTF Secretary General George Wasonga that indicated That Murangu had been relieved of his duty as the coach. Murangu said on Friday that he will file contempt of court against NOC-K, should he fail to travel with the team today.
