David RUDISHA’s powerful MESSAGE to POLITICIANS.Sports 01:02
Friday, 07 December 2012 - As the race to the March 4th general election continues to take shape with politicians working round the clock to consolidate support as demonstrated by the recent betrothals and betrayals, Kenya’s 800m World Champion David Rudisha has called upon politicians to borrow a leaf from athletes.
Rudisha who was crowned the 2012 Safaricom Sports Personality of the Year (SOYA) on Thursday evening urged the politicians to compete but give each other a friendly hug at the finish line and congratulate whoever wins.
In a statement posted on his Facebook account, Rudisha wrote: "As we approach the elections, I call on politicians & ALL Kenyans to compete like athletes.
‘If you lose, you pull yourself together, congratulate the winner & look forward to the next race. Just like sports, when WE break world records, I DON'T break it for MY people, I run for KENYA & every other tribe.
This should be the spirit that brings all of us together as ONE Nation."
