Kenya is basking in glory after successfully hosting one of the biggest, if not the biggest, IAAF World Under 18 Championships that concluded this past weekend at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani.
Apart from hosting the strongest crowd ever recorded in the tournament’s history, our teenage athletes didn’t disappoint either, they won medals after medals both in the track and field.
The refurbished stadium was a sight to behold and it was such a fresh breath of fresh air for Kenya to host its world-beating athletes at home as opposed to them going abroad leaving Kenyans spectating from their sitting rooms.
From being a hotbed of winning athletes the country has now joined the ranks of world class hosts.
So this past weekend, tens of thousands of Kenyans from all walks of life converged at Kasarani for the event, especially after President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered organisers to drop the entry fees. The 60,000-seater was filled to capacity leaving tens of thousands of other would be spectators stranded outside.
Among those who joined fellow enthusiastic Kenyans at Kasarani was television personality Jeff Koinange, he of the popular Citizen TV talk show JKL.
It was however a picture of him taking a selfie with a smoking hot policewoman that left tongues wagging.
And the comments came in thick and fast!
