Suleman commented shortly after Kenyan athlete David Barmasai Tumo emerged winner of the 2020 Lagos City Marathon. The popular cleric wondered whether it is their stamina or capacity for long-suffering that is responsible for their Marathon success.
On his Twitter page, he raised questions regarding the excellent performance Kenyans always put on in marathons shortly after Kenyan athlete David Barmasai Tumo emerged winner of the 2020 Lagos City Marathon.
The 42km race which commenced at the National Stadium in Surulere, Lagos state, saw David Barmasai Tumo cross the finish line at the Eko Atlantic in a course record time of 2 hours, 10 minutes and 23 seconds. The 31-year-old Kenyan athlete won the sum of $50,000 after completing the 42km race.
Pastor Suleman tweeted: “What’s with Kenyans always coming 1st in Marathon race?..is it stamina or capacity for long-suffering?…don’t dare a long-distance race with an athletic Kenyan or you will only come 1st from behind…kudos to Kenyans on the victory at the Lagos Marathon. God bless you.”
The cleric’s tweet, as expected, has generated several reactions from his followers and other Twitter users.
