Tuesday October 15, 2019-Self-proclaimed National Resistance Movement (NRM) general, Miguna Miguna, has made disparaging remarks against marathon legend, Eliud Kipchoge, who broke the two hour marathon barrier in Vienna, Austria on Saturday.
Kipchoge ran 42 kilometres marathon in 1.59.40 seconds becoming the first human to run the race in under two hours.
Commenting on social media on Saturday , Miguna argued that in 2019, while the rest of the world celebrated Nobel Prize winners in Physics, Economics, Medicine, Literature, Peace and other achievements of the human brain, creativity and industry, Kenyans were ululating over what he described as runners, hunters and gatherers.
“In 2019, as the world celebrates NOBEL PRIZE winners in Physics, Economics, Medicine, Literature, Peace and other ACHIEVEMENTS of the HUMAN BRAIN, CREATIVITY and INDUSTRY, Kenyans are ululating over RUNNERS. Hunters and gatherers are obsolete. Wars are no longer won by runners,” Miguna Miguna wrote on Twitter
Following his unfortunate remarks, Kenyans branded Miguna as a failure, vulgar and a sour loser for criticising other people's achievements when he had barely achieved any comparable feat.
