His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta has snatched the opportunity to congratulated Kenyan sensational marathoner Eliud Kipchoge for winning the 2021 Association of National Olympic Committee (ANOC) Award for the Best-Male-Athlete at the Tokyo-Olympics.

According to the statement shared on state-house website, the first in command insighted the prestigious ANOC-Award is a global recognition of Kenya's🇰🇪 prominence as a sporting-nation, and reportedly advised upcoming-athletes to emulate the Kenyan star, Eliud's determination, humility, hard work and patriotism as they build their careers.

However, one of his fans reacted questioning why should the head of the state congratulate these athletes and when they come home they receive no recognition.

"Why should you congratulate these athletes and when they come home they receive no recognition? The late Agnes the record holder died without your single recognition, government never bothered to give her a befiting send off! You just want to eat on their backs only when they win"

"But state commendations go to the likes of Pauline Njoroge." Karue tweeted.
