Former Africa Games 10,000m champion Kenneth Kiprop Kipkemoi is the latest elite athlete to be banned for failing an anti-doping test.
Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU), an independent body of the World Athletics, which is in charge of the fight against doping said Kipkemoi had prohibited substances in his sample and has effectively issued a charge against him.
In the meantime, he is not eligible to compete in any race as he faces a provisional suspension.
Over 60 athletes have been nabbed in the last four years. Kenya is among the top four countries which have runners with the highest cases of doping; others are Ukraine, Ethiopia and Venezuela.
