    NAIROBI, Kenya — Kenya plans to bid for the 2016 Olympics and bring the games to Africa for the first time.

    “If Mexico could host it in 1968, and it was a poor country, why can’t we?” Sports Minister Ochillo Ayacko said Thursday. “We are serious about sports. We’re actually an Olympic tiger in the making. Participation includes hosting.”
