This study is carried out on the background of the many disputes in sports in Kenya. The study takes an athlete-centered approach owing to the fact that they are the most affected pmties in the event of a tussle. The first chapter sets out a basic background by which disputes occur in Kenya. It also introduces the elements that will be discussed in the following chapters.The theories of cultural relativism and justice have informed my assertions about the avenues explored in dispute resolution in sports in Kenya . There is a study of two landmark cases, before the enactment of the Sports Act (2013), which show institutional attitude towards dispute resolution as well as the cou1t 's analysis of the decisions. The Sp01ts Act attempts to mitigate the issues that arise from these cases though there are various legal technicalities by which the Act fails to fully canvas the issues that arose from the decisions.Chapters 1-4 are more of informative chapters with decisions, articles and statistics and very little analysis. Further analysis is contained in the final chapter where the information is harmonized .
