Kenyans had taken offense after the National assembly decided to take 20 legislators to benchmark at the world cup in Russia and come up with a report to improve the sport in Kenya.
Kenyans felt it was a waste of the tax payers money to take legislators. Some claimed that legislators traveled to Rio, Brazil during the Olympics and the report that they made has never been tabled.
