That turned out well, then.

An Australian Border Force (ABF) spokesperson said in a statement today that the Australian Government had been "working closely with the organising committee and worldwide stakeholders to ensure Commonwealth Games officials and athletes were aware of their visa responsibilities".

"But these athletes are guests here in Australia, they are still within their visas and they have the right to travel freely", Mr Grevemberg said.

The only Kenyan boxing medal victor at this year's Commonwealth Games, Christine Ongare says if more fights are arranged for Kenyan female boxers, they would be able to prepare well for such a major championship.

"We share their concern regarding obviously the safety, welfare, whereabouts of these athletes".

Nsengiyumva has joined the list of athletes and nations that have gracefully tarnished the name of Rwanda and Africa at large.They include; eight Cameroon athletes, two Ugandans and potentially one Ghanaian.

"The CGF shall notify Vikram Singh Sisodia, Namdev Shirgaonker and Ravinder Chaudhry any further infractions by nearly any part of this Indian team of this "no-needle" coverage could lead to the lack of accreditation of this offending individual", he explained. "The panel will be appointed after the Games", AFI Secretary CK Valson said after the CGF court stripped them of their accreditation and asked them to leave for India.

Seven of them were from Cameroon.

"We would appreciate them sticking within the law, enjoying themselves, but sticking within the law", organising committee boss Peter Beattie told reporters.

The athletes' visas expire on May 15, a month after the Games concludes, and cases of disappearances have already hit the headlines. I don't want to be too blase about it but there are mechanisms to deal with it and it will be dealt with in the right way by that department.

"Australia must also be congratulated for their hugely successful event and they can be proud of the organisation and facilities they have delivered. It's very, very disappointing and very, very embarrassing for Cameroon", adding he "doesn't think they'll come back".
