Kenya risks a drop in the continental seeding if its not represented at the forthcoming Africa Taekwondo Championships in Libya.

The team is experiencing financial difficulties following the government’s reluctance to sponsor it. Despite its high ranking, Kenya might fail to take part in the continental showpiece in Libya due to the financial constraints.

According to the Taekwondo Federation Secretary General George Wesonga their persistent appeal to the government to get them out of the financial gloom has hit a snag.

The Tripoli games are scheduled for the 20 to 27th of this month and will attract 42 teams.
