Doping bribe manager arrested at JKIA upon arrival, charged

A court has ordered Kenyan Olympic athletics team manager Michael Rotich, who was recalled from Rio over doping bribery claims, to be detained at the Gigiri Police Station.

Mr Rotich was arrested at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on Tuesday and taken to court.

Prosecutors applied to detain him for seven days pending investigations by the anti-narcotics police.

Mr Rotich objected to the application, saying anti-narcotics police cannot investigate him because he was not recalled over drug trafficking.

He will be brought to court on Wednesday.
