BREAKING: ZANE ABOUT TO BE ARRESTED
(4 MIN PODCAST)
Happenning today for smuggling EPO. Robertson under surveillance since yesterday. Involving Kenyan police and Kenyan Athletics anti drugs group. Will happen today, and apparently others will be raided/picked up too.
LRC note: Here is a transcript of the relevant portion about Zane:
What Zane then did the fruitcake that he is, he then went on a podcast with one of his buddies in New Zealand and openly admitted to the whole world that he'd smuggled E P O from Ethiopia into Kenya, which obviously is a crime, especially given the current climate in Kenya where they're trying to crack down on doping and, foreigners bringing in drugs into the country.
So I got in contact with somebody there. I'm not gonna reveal the name at the moment, we'll come back to that in a minute. And, uh, basically had a discussion with him and that triggered Um, an investigation that is called Operation Blood Orange Trails. Now what's happened is the Kenyan Director of Criminal investigation have linked up with the anti doping agency of Kenya.
And since the early hours of Sunday, uh, Zane Robertson's been under surveillance, and the two basically, well, the dci, the director of Criminal Investigation, and ADAK, the Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya. They've linked up and they're now planning to swoop in on a number of training camps and individual dopers in Iten, the Home of Champions, also known as Home of Dope Fiends.
So,obviously the, the conversation that I had with a person, a senior officer in the DCI in Eldoret has triggered this, but it's kind of important to explain, you know, why I've gone down this route because, we've known for obviously many years that Kenya has a doping problem, and it's largely been sort of, um, felt that this was kind of being done on a crude basis.
That, you know, the, the busts were down to husbands forcing wives to dope, shady deals in the back streets, behind pharmacies and dodgy doctors trying to earn a little bit of coin and some officials trying to get tea money and things like this.
But Zane's admission to smuggling EPO Into Kenya now opens up, you know, the whole claims that Kenyan athletics have been saying.
It's foreign coaches and managers and runners bringing the, the gear into Kenya and then dishing it out to, in the camps and then into, you know, individuals. Whereas most people just thought it was Kenyan people doing it now it needs investigating. And that's the reason why I basically got in contact with the DCI to get something done about this because I just knew everybody would sit on it and nothing would happen.
It's great that they're in on it now, and as we, as I'm speaking now, I know that action's being taken on this and, uh, a number of people are gonna get pulled in and hopefully this can start to unravel the, the seediness as that's going around in Iten at the moment, and start to begin to clear things up.
I'm gonna have a lot more in the Thursday podcast, also the Blue Line, the journalist there, Elise Beacom, whom I coach, and she used to work for the United Nations as a journalist and she's working for the the Blue Line. Um, she's gonna have the full story as well. I think it comes out on Thursday. I'm gonna be giving her all the details, but also tune into this Stazzasstable podcast, the Stable master speaks on Thursday, and I'll give you the ins and out and the full skinny. It's really juicy. Stay tuned.
