Digital Innovations director at the office of the President Dennis Itumbi came under fire after proposing that marathon great Eliud Kipchoge should be feted with a presidential award.

According to Itumbi, Kipchoge who on Saturday became the first human being to run a marathon under 2 hours should receive the highest medal for his achievement.

In a tweet, the blogger suggested that the legend should receive the Chief of The Golden Hearts (CGH) award.

“Because we now know that no man is limited, @EliudKipchoge, deserves a CGH, the highest medal Kenya reserves for its finest sons and daughters,” he wrote.

His suggestion was not well received as some thought the marathon record holder deserved more than a medal.

Some reckoned that the government should complete the stadia they promised Kenyans and name one in his name.
