Eliud Kipchoge

Controversial Classic 105 fan is furious after some Kenyans criticized Eliud Kipchoge over the mere fact that he did not ‘properly’ hug his wife.

Eliud Kipchoge who was over the weekend participating in the INEOS 1:59 challenge became the first man to run a marathon in under two hours.

Like always there were some members of Kamati Ya Roho Chafu who couldn’t help but find something to criticize him for.

Captain Kale said,

‘How was he supposed to hug his wife properly at the speed he was running? Kenyans can be very petty.

Did you see how CNN celebrated us? In our culture She (the wife) is not supposed to accompany him.

We used to watch kipchoge with his wife here in Eldoret on the screens back in the day.’

Captain Kale went on to add that,

‘In the Nandi culture it is a bad. It’s a bad omen, when you find a woman in your way you are supposed to run away.

We say that when you go hunting or to work you are not supposed to carry your wife along with you.

If Kipchoge was constantly carrying his wife to go and watch his races he would not be where he is today.’

Captain Kale went on to add,

‘Men in that sub clan don’t live with their wives, Kipchoge can know if he can win or not.’

In conclusion, he said,

‘Please don’t ruin our mood over petty things let us continue celebrating.’
