Melanin beauty Akisa Wandera who wowed viewers each day on KTN for her broadcasting prowess alongside her natural looks was all too glad to express a pleasant surprise from her homeboy.

Akisa who hails from Busia took to Twitter to reveal her joy at the remarkable performance of Ferdinand Omanyala who, despite being born and raised in the neighbouring county of Bungoma, is a Busia indigene as well. He clinched the 100m men Commonwealth gold medal on Wednesday. An excited Akisa Wandera, who is now with the BBC, couldn’t hide her pleasure as she went online let it all out with a retweet of the victory.

Omanyala, the Africa 100 metres champion, handed Kenya its first gold medal at the 2022 Commonwealth Games when he dashed to victory in men’s 100m at the Alexander Stadium.
 “We have it…It’s now a reality!” said Omanyala, adding that he has been working for the victory since the beginning of the year.
“It feels nice, I know it will take days to sink. It feels nice in front of this receptive crowd.”
He said the victory is a big motivation towards next season where there will be a World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary and the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.

“It needed someone to break the barrier because there will be so many other sprinters coming through. It will have a lot of impact now that I have two championship gold medals and an Africa record,” noted Omanyala, who has personal best of 9.77 seconds.

The African champion said that he used the challenges he faced towards the just concluded World Athletics Championships in Oregon as a stepping stone to good performance.
Visa hitches saw Omanyala arrive in Oregon just hours before the start of the 100m where he reached the semi-finals. “
It was about moving forward, using the setbacks to focus on the next adventure. Everything happens for a reason,” said Omanyala.
Omanyala explained that the rivalry between himself and Simbine has brought out the beast in him.

“I thank him for keeping me on toes. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t’ be fighting for anything now,” said Omanyala, who is yet to lose to Simbine.
