Content creator Azziad Nasenya has set the record straight regarding the rumors circulating that she is part of the delegation that will be flying to Paris for the Olympics.

Azziad vehemently stated that she would not be travelling for the Olympics as speculated, expressing her disappointment in the narratives being peddled online.

I need to make something clear. First of all, I am not part of the Kenya delegation to the Paris Olympics 2024. It is unfortunate that someone would come up with false allegations on such a matter,” she said in a statement.

The Tiktoker explained her relationship with the Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs was brief and was not involved directly.

“My Involvement with the Ministry of Youth Affairs, Creative Economy, and
Sports was centered around the Creatives Technical Committee of the Talanta Hela Council, headed by Daniel Ndambuki AKA Churchill.

I was selected and mandated to represent the younger population in the Creatives Technical Committee. However, the committee was disbanded in June 2023. I’ve not involved myself since,” she stated.

Azziad defended the sources of funds aiding her international travels to quell the allegations of government sponsorship.

” I want to make it clear that my travel to Dubai and other places have been finances by myself, clients or family and never , as numerously claimed by Government of Kenya. There were allegations that I traveled to Dubai using money meant for renovating a stadium. At the time, I was in Dubai recording content for #VisitDubai campaign, a trip that was fully funded by the client,” she defended.

She lauded the efforts by the Gen Z’s in pushing the administration to embrace accountability, and consoled with the families who lost loved one in the anti-government protests. She added that she would continue to use her platforms to champion change in the county.

“I am proud of all that we have accomplished in addressing government accountability in the last few days. My heart goes out to the families who lost their loved ones while we fought for the future of our country. I have lent and will continue to lend my voice and my platform to support positive change in the country,” she ended her statement.

Her revelation comes at a time when pressure was mounting on Sports and Youth Affairs CS Ababu Namwamba to release the names of the non- competitor attendees of the Paris Olympics 2024.

On Thursday, July 11 ,Namwamba caved and announced that he had  directed the National Olympics Committee of Kenya (NOCK) to make public the full Kenya delegation for the Paris Olympics 2024.

He directed the names and roles of all athletes, officials, and medics selected for the Olympic Games be revealed in line with the government’s transparency and accountability policy.

“The delegation to be kept at the barest minimum as directed by myself and affirmed by the PMC, the priority is athletes, their coaches and medics,” the letter read to NOCK read.
