 For President Kenyatta, this is the third sporting event the President is attending in the past 24 hours.

On Saturday, the President and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta joined thousands of athletics fans at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani in Nairobi County for this year’s Kip Keino Classic.

The annual track and field event launched in 2020 is part of the Continental Tour Gold Series of the World Athletics, and is named after Kenyan Olympian Kipchoge Keino.

On Sunday morning, the President flagged off the inaugural Nairobi City Marathon, dubbed Uhuru Classic, at Nyayo National Stadium.
