It was the fastest time recorded at the Zatopek event in 12 years, while the winning margin of 26 seconds was the biggest since 2002.

    I’m totally disgrantled,field with fear and worry for the merciless Kenyans who are left unheard to the extent  they are abused mentally,physically by the so called law enforcers.I watched with disbilief and dismayed about these young man who was brutally attacked by police officers, sorry, call them hooligans or use any other word you may like to describe their inhuman approach.
      I believe in the rule of law.The corridors of justice are open to everyone who seeks a reprieve.It’s very clear that there’s no body who’s above the law. To my understanding,that means that law is applicable to everyone without any favour.My question is,what is the kenya human rights watchdog doing in response to these heinous act
