Self-proclaimed NRM General Miguna Miguna is in an online storm with netizens after blasting Kenyans for over-celebrating Marathon Great Eliud Kipchoge. According to the Canadian based lawyer, Kenyans were behaving like hunters and gatherers.

Taking to social media, the former Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant said that whereas the world is celebrating NOBEL PEACE Prize winners and other achievements of the human brain in 2019, Kenyans are ululating over runners.

“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.” reads part of a post on Miguna’s Twitter Handle.

On Saturday, Kipchoge became the first human being to run the Marathon under 2 hours in a highly publicized race dubbed the INEOS 1:59 Challenge. He has received international recognition for the landmark achievement.

Former US President Barrack Obama is among those who congratulated him. It is, therefore, baffling that Miguna would be the only person to see this differently.

This is what Kenyans are saying:

The angry feedback forced Miguna to clarify his statement.

“I did not even suggest that Kenyans should stop running or celebrating runners. Those who cannot comprehend should not blame me for their limitations.”
