Nairobi, Kenya, September 18, 2020–On behalf of the Local Organising Committee of the WRC Safari Rally, I would like to thank the Government, through the Cabinet Secretary for Sport, Hon. Amb. (Dr.) Amina Mohamed, and Principal Secretary Mr. Joe Okudo, for releasing the Resumption of Sport Protocols.
These protocols are timely and will help us, as a nation, resume various sporting activities with attendant caution and discipline.
As the WRC Safari Rally and motorsports in general, we wish to assure the Cabinet Secretary and the Government that we shall follow and enforce these protocols to ensure safety for both our competitors and also officials, spectators, and various other parties involved in motorsport.
Motorsport is a non-contact sport but this does not mean that we will let our guard down as we join the rest of the country in ensuring we flatten the Covid-19 curve.
I would also like to most sincerely thank the Ministry of Sports, Culture, and Heritage for the support they have continued to give us as we prepare for the return of the Safari Rally to the World Rally Championship calendar next year.
We are on track with preparations and the timely release of the Resumption of Sport Protocols will guide us towards the right direction.
Phineas Kimathi, M.B.S.
Chief Executive Officer
