Algeria – Five times champions of Africa! World Champions! Titles, distinctions, trophies, do you want it here … This is the impressive record, not exhaustive, of the Algerian Karate team.
However, it is not this team that will represent Algeria at the African championship to be held from August 27 to September 3 in Kigali (Rwanda), no.
The gold medalist and African champion, Kamelia Hadj Said, tells us that the Federation of this discipline (FAK) preferred to tinker with a small team, made up of strangers from the karate world. Karatekas without winners, who must have qualities other than performance and results. A nameless scandal to which the Federation of this Martial art is devoted under the nose and beard of the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mohamed Hattab
The outcry is general. The scandal is posted online and the world is shocked by such practices. A question yet remains whole! How can small officials running a small karate federation also be assured of impunity. And be as unresponsive to the reaction of their guardianship? And why does the Ministry remain behind a scandal that directly affects the notoriety of karate and therefore the National Sport at the African level?
