Former world javelin champion Julius Yego has graduated with Bachelor’s degree in Public Policy and Administration from Kenyatta University.
The former Commonwealth Games javelin champion joined a host of other graduands in celebrating their education achievements.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) officer initially urged athletes to take up education to supplement their running career.
Yego challenged athletes not to go through the school but to work hard and earn the purpose of them being in school.
“I want to urge athletes not to go through the school but be in school with a purpose of passing and being relevant in their course. You can meet someone who has done form four but writing the name is a challenge. Those are not the type of education we want but the quality one,” said the Africa javelin champion.
