Kenya's Prime minister, Raila Odinga,says he wants to see the Olympics in Nairobi come 2024.
Acknowledging that his country's bid wont be easy considering the fact that the American cities of New York and San Francisco along with Durban in South Africa could be thinking of bidding too.
Mr Odinga said sub-Saharan Africa’s time to host the games had come as the region’s trillion-dollar economy was set to boom over the next decade.
“Kenya had the confidence as far back as 1968 to consider bidding for the Olympics,” said Kenya’s Prime Minister, Raila Odinga to the Financial Times.
“That is the spirit we need to recapture. We need to bring back that confidence and say we can do it. It is necessary to take a look back at where are coming from and where we want to go, because we have been drifting for too long,” Odinga said.
Kenya is currently 27th in the London 2012 medal table with seven medals.
On Thursday, Kenyan David Rudisha became the first athlete to set a new world record on the track at the London Games.
Other countries thinking about bidding for 2024 include Argentina, Morocco and Egypt.
