In March 2018 the Anti-Doping Agency of Kenya (ADAK) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the the Athlete Ronald Kiptai Matakat after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substance Prednisolone. After notification a provisional suspension was ordered. The Athlete filed a statement in his defence and he was heard for the Kenya Judiciary Office of the Sports Disputes Tribunal.

The Athlete admitted the violation, accepted the test result, denied the intentional use of the substance and requested for a reduced sanction. He explained with evidence that he suffered from a cold and had used several prescribed medication from a hospital including prednisolone.

The Panel accepts that the violation was not intentional and that he acted negligently as he failed to mention his Prednisolone on the Doping Control Form nor did he apply for a TUE.
Therefore the Kenya Judiciary Office of the Sports Disputes Tribunal decides on 29 November 2018 to impose a 2 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete starting on 17 March 2018.
