A group of Kenyan athletes have occupied the headquarters of the sport’s national governing body, stopping officials from entering.
They want Athletics Kenya (AK) officials to step down over corruption allegations linked to a deal with Nike, the BBC’s Anne Soy reports.
AK Vice President David Okeyo has denied the allegations.
The athletes also blame the administrators for failing to deal with doping in the sport.
Dick Pound, the man looking into doping for world athletics governing body, the IAAF, said that Kenyan athletics had a “real problem” with athletes taking performing-enhancing drugs.
The protesters say they want former athletes to manage AK.
