The Kenyan Olympic team is facing challenging situations after they were left stranded in Rio De Janeiro despite the 2016 Games coming to an end. 

The team was kicked out of the Olympic village on Wednesday, August 24, which added to their already complicated situation.

Among the team’s challenges include the fear of Zika virus, the world javelin champion Julius Yego missing his flight following a mistake with his ticket and two Kenyan managers getting dismissed from the game and repatriated from the country over doping allegations.

According to Rio Team Kenya captain Wesley Korir, the Kenyan government didn’t make plans for their return home and possibly booked them for a cheaper flight for Thursday, August 25 – which was why they were left stranded.

Those stranded include, Cherangany MP. Korir and three others.

On Wednesday night, there was complaints about being moved to an inhabitable accommodation after their dismissal from the Olympic village.

Korir tweeted with a video of the new accommodation, “This is unbelievable. This is where the rest of the Kenyan team will spend their night today, after the Olympic village is closed.”
