Omanyala ‘unites’ Ruto & Raila

Africa’s quickest man Ferdinand Omanyala has achieved the close to unimaginable thing of joining Deputy President William Ruto and previous Prime Minister Raila Odinga who are secured in an unpleasant challenge for the administration.

The two official applicants have briefly saved the political fight to compliment Omanyala for stowing gold for Kenya in the 100m race at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games on Thursday night.

“Kenya’s jewel and Africa’s quickest man @Ferdiomanyala gets gold at the Commonwealth Games, timing 10.02 seconds. What a man! We are glad for you,” Dr Ruto tweeted following Omanyala hair-raising triumph.

Similarly, Mr Odinga hailed Omanyala for doing right by all Kenyans.

“Africa’s quickest man, a child of our dirt, @Ferdiomanyala, you have done right by our whole country. Your triumph embodies the consequences of concentration, boldness, consistency, and penance. Congrats!” Mr Odinga said.

Omanyala floated to agreeable win in a period of 10:02 seconds to depose until now Commonwealth champion Akani Simbine of South Africa who coordinated 10:07. Yupun Abeykoon from Sri Lanka made due with bronze in 10.14 sec.

The 26-year-old Omanyala wrestled the Commonwealth Games title from Simbine under two months in the wake of grabbing the Africa crown from him. Talking after his triumph, the recently delegated Commonwealth Games champion said he currently has his sights on the Olympics and world titles.

“Bringing home the Africa and Commonwealth championships as well as establishing another Africa Record in under one year makes that fantasy for the world and Olympic title conceivable and a reality,” Omanyala told Nation.Africa.

Omanyala’s triumph in Birmingham has made up for his failure at the as of late closed World Athletics Championship in Oregon, where he bowed out in the semi-last in the background of a visa hitch that postponed his appearance in the USA.
