Ugandans want Kiprotich to be driven from Entebbe Airport through Kampala streets to wave at his supporters.

Kiprotich thrilled the nation after winning gold in the men’s marathon at the Olympics games on Saturday.

“Kiprotich will arrive on Entebbe International Airport at exactly 7.30 am on Wednesday,” says Mary Karooro Okurut.

“He will be received by relevant ministers and other Government officials. Thereafter, Kiprotich will be booked in one of the hotels in Entebbe to relax and freshen up,” she further states.

“At 10 o’clock, Kiprotich will proceed to State House Entebbe and will be received by His Excellency President Yoweri Museveni to officially welcome and congratulate him upon the momentous achievement he has attained for his country and thereafter, a breakfast will be hosted at State House Entebbe in his honor.”
