Three years ago photos of deputy president William Ruto running at the airport filled social media.
Everyone was concerned as to why the DP was forced to run.
It was later proven that the DP was also in the euphoria that was sweeping the country as athletes returned to the country.
And so the DP had to run to receive the heroes who had made Kenya proud after landing at the Jomo Kenyatta International airport.
President Uhuru Kenyatta posted the pictures of DP Ruto running on his twitter account with a caption :
Great seeing my deputy @williamruto running to welcome #teamkenya to the country they have made a #home of legends.
The team was then treated to a breakfast at the deputy President’s home before heading to Kenyatta International Conference Centre where a sumptuous spread awaited them.
Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko was not left behind as he gave the athletes a presidential like welcome at the airport.
Audi limos,hummers and gold plated mercedes benz fleets were ready for the heroes courtesy of the governor.
He also promised to prepare a national feast for the returned athletes.
