Ferdinand Omanyala has thanked former President Uhuru Kenyatta and wished him well in retirement.
The Commonwealth 100 metres champion urged Kenyatta not to stop watching his races.
"Happy retirement.....hope u will not stop coming to watch my races. Thank you for your service," Omanyala stated.
The former Head of State was a big fan of Omanyala's exploits and commended him for his displays.
"It was super exciting to watch Ferdinand win the 100m dash in style and earning our country her first gold medal in Birmingham. The win is a groundbreaking achievement not just for Ferdinand but for the whole of Kenya's athletics because he has excelled in a domain that's not traditionally ours," the former President said after his commonwealth victory.
