Kenya leg of the 2020 World Rally Championships which was scheduled for July has been postponed to next year due to the Coronavirus.
The decision was taken after consultations between the government of Kenya, WRC promoter and the International Automobile Association (FIA).
Safari Rally made a return to the global map last year after 17 years in the cold.

Sports CS Amina Mohamed, while thanking President Uhuru Kenyatta, who’s the Safari Rally patron for continued support, assured that preparations for the meet will continue.
“We will contine to prepare for the event as groundworks are already in top gear, ” said Amina.
