Minister has no power to disband committee, Kenya Olympic committee says

Kenya’s Olympic committee has said it’s not going anywhere despite a government order disbanding it, BBC reports.
The Sports Minister Hassan Wario wanted to break up the committee over accommodation, travel and equipment problems at the Rio Olympics.
But the secretary general of the Olympic committee, Francis Paul, has responded saying that the minister had no powers to disband the body.
He said the committee was an autonomous body free from what he described as “government interference”.
Kenya won 13 medals in Rio, including six golds – the highest placed African country.
