Returning Champions from the Beijing World Athletics Championship were yesterday treated to a remarkable hero’s welcome at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Led by Deputy President William Ruto and Nairobi senator Mike Sonko, the Kenyan sportsmen were accorded a presidential-like escort.
The senator in particular, provided his Sonko Rescue Team fleet comprising of Audi Q7 limos, Hummers and several gold-plated Mercedes Benz cars to give the athletes a grand reception. They were then driven to the official residence of the Deputy President in Karen, where they were hosted for a banquet in their honour.
Here are all the photos from the overwhelming reception they received
