His death comes slightly over a week after State House was forced to delete a social media post mourning him on March 26.

State House deleted the post after reports that Kiptanui was still alive.

In the post, President Uhuru Kenyatta had eulogized the deceased as a hardworking Kenyan patriot who served the nation for many years with great distinction.
