Humphrey Kayange Appointed to World Anti-Doping Agency

Kenya rugby legend and the National rugby sevens captain Humphrey Kayange has been appointed as the Executive Member of World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

WADA president Witold Banka confirmed the appointment saying that he was delighted with the prospect of working with the Kenyan rugby player.

“I wished to follow up formally with regards to your recent appointment to the WADA Executive Committee (ExCo), as a representative of the IOC Athletes Commission, for a three-year term commencing on June 1, 2022,” read Banja’s letter to Kayange.

“I look forward to working with you in your capacity as an ExCo member, and, of course, in your continued role as a Foundation Board member as well.”

Kayange’s appointment to WADA ExCo is seen as a well-calculated move to inject momentum into Kenya’s relentless campaign and fight against the vice in the country.

WADA’s Executive Committee (ExCo) and Foundation Board (Board) met in Cairo, Egypt, on May 18 and 19 for their first meetings of 2022.

Khayange who was recently decorated with the Order of Golden Warrior by President Uhuru Kenyatta is also the CEO of Team Kenya for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
