Miguna Miguna is back!
Yes, he is but the self-proclaimed NRM General is on a hot seat after he bashed Kenyans for “over-celebrating” the NoHumanIsLimited marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge.
The former Nairobi gubernatorial seat’s aspirant took to social media and accused Kenyans of acting like hunters and gatherers.
He said that while the world is celebrating NOBEL PRIZE winners in serious disciplines such as Literature, Medicine, Physics, Economics and Peace that require reasoning, Kenyans are busy ululating and chanting “Iyani” over “RUNNERS.”
His twitter handle read “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.”
Miguna further added that wars are not won by runners. In other words, Kenyans need to think big than run faster.
Kipchoge was the first human on earth to run a marathon below two hours. Consequently, the Kenyan athlete has received international recognition for his great achievement.
Even the former US President Barrack Obama is among those who congratulated him. So it is a wonder how Miguna, who hails from Kenya, can hold a contrary opinion.
Enraged Kenyans have since reacted to Miguna’s twitter handle.
Some have told him to do the dishes if he is too idle.
Others told him that not all Kenyans can become scientists, but we can celebrate our achievements especially if they inspire the whole nation.
Others dared him to win a Nobel Prize in Physics, Economics, Medicine, Literature, Peace or any other achievement of the “HUMAN BRAIN, CREATIVITY and INDUSTRY” so he can give Kenyans worth celebrating.
Others told Miguna that the athletes run to better the lives of their families, not to win the war.
Another Kenyan suggested that this is the reason why Miguna should be barred from entering Kenya. He further added that Kenya remains a home of champions and world record breakers. He dared him to win the Nairobi Gubernatorial seat first.
This angry feedback obliged Miguna to clarify his statement.
He said “I did not even suggest that Kenyans should stop running or celebrating runners. Those who cannot comprehend should not blame me for their limitations.”
He however rudely suggested that those who were trolling him have got comprehension limitations which he cannot be blamed for.
