In a sarcastic tweet, Nyairera said: “I think South Africa is the only country affected by testosterone issue since it’s the only country supporting their own Caster Semenya. Unfortunately, my mother land country #Kenya got no utterance on this issue despite the fact that it has over two athletes affected by the same issue.” To her, the move by IAAF is discrimination in its best form but she remained firm that she will not take drugs to suppress her natural hormones.

It is just God’s deed but now we are discriminated and our careers are falling as we watch. It’s very sad,” she added in another emotional tweet-a once national pride left alone by the whole nation to fight her battle.

Nyairera herself is not willing to inject unnecessary chemical in her system, arguing that she is not sick to take drugs. The athlete who announced her presence in the athletics world with a Gold at the 2014 World Junior Championship fears that her once promising career will collapse if the IAAF imposes the law on any athlete with elongated primary male hormone. Having finished a disappointing sixth in the first leg at the Doha Diamond League, Nyairera isn’t sure what the future holds for her on the track.

Kenyan athletes-Maxmilla Imali and Evangeline Makena were forced to return to the country home after being found to have excessive hormones. Nyairera fears she might be denied an opportunity to take part in the forthcoming IAAF World Athletics Challenges in Beijing next week. Nyairera now wants Kenyans to stand with her and other athletes who face a similar problem.
