Keitany, Lagat and Chelimo lead protest over murder of Muthee

Three time London marathon champion Mary keitany led a host of athletes and locals to protest over the increased Gender Based Violence in the country.

The protest under the Agnes Tirop Angels comes just a week after marathoner Damaris Muthee Mutua was found murdered in a house in Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet County.

The Kenyan born turned Bahraini body was found decomposing Iten without any physical injuries covered on the bed with a pillow on her face. Her alleged Ethiopian lover now a fugitive identified as Eskinder Hailemariam is believed to be the prime suspect.

The four time New York Marathon champion Keitany led York Marathon silver medalist Violah Lagat and Seoul Marathon champion Kenyan-born Romanian athlete Joan Chelimo the demonstration in Iten.

This comes at a time when two-time world 10,000 metres bronze medalist Agnes Tirop was murdered in October last year.
