Kenya is one of the many countries in the world where there is population confinement due to the coronavirus crisis. As Marc Roig told us a few days ago in the Stock Market of the Corridor, it is not one of the most affected places and for the moment the pandemic has not wreaked havoc, but the authorities have preferred to be on guard against the health threat. Well, one of its most illustrious marathoners, the sanctioned for doping Wilson Kipsang, has been arrested for skipping that confinement while drinking in a bar in Iten, one of the mecca of the world fund.

20 people forcibly detained

The confinement in the African country is not in the same phase as in Spain and Italy and there is "only" a curfew since seven in the afternoon. A ban on stepping on the street that both Kipsanga and 19 other people skipped to drink at a club in that town Elgeyo-Marakwet County.

According to the Kenyan newspaper Standard Digital, the police said that the ‘hunted’, visibly drunk, tried to resist arrest, forcing officers patrolling the area to search for reinforcements. Wilson is the only man in all of history who has managed to beat Kipchoge in a marathon (Berlin 2013). In addition, the Kenyan has an Olympic bronze in his record in London’12 and has won four of the six ‘Majors’.
