Kenyans on various platforms are questioning the whereabouts of Eliud Kipchoge after he was not spotted at the dias where Kenyan athletes were called upon to deliver their final condolences message during the burial of world record holder Kelvin Kiptum.

Those scrutinizing Kipchoge’s actions argued that he failed to congratulate Kiptum when the latter broke his record in the Chicago Marathon in October last year with a time of 2:00:35.

Despite considerable prodding from Kenyan netizens, Kipchoge’s social media accounts remained unresponsive to Kiptum’s achievement.

However, Kipchoge did convey his condolence message to the family and kin of Kiptum on the day of his tragic accident.

“I am deeply saddened by the tragic passing of the Marathon World record holder and rising star Kelvin Kiptum. An athlete who had a whole life ahead of him to achieve incredible greatness,” Kipchoge posted in a statement on X, referring to Kiptum, who beat his world record by 34 seconds in October.

As Kenyans, we eagerly awaited the sight of the Kenyan marathon legend Eliud Kipchoge, but he was nowhere to be found.

Speculation continued to mount as it couldn’t be verified whether he attended the funeral, as he was not captured on camera.

This is what Kenyans had to say on X
