Athlete Jailed in Uganda

A Kenyan athlete has been in jail in Uganda for the last two months after he won a marathon race in the neighbouring country. Athletics Kenya yesterday confirmed that Daniel Kiplagat Sambu from Keiyo District has been in jail after he was convicted for being in Uganda illegally.

He won the MTI Marathon race in Kampala but he was immediately arrested following confusion over his nationality. It was said he had claimed to be a Ugandan yet he was a Kenyan.
