Good morning Kenyans.
The weekend is just around the corner after a week marred with new stands, embarrassing moments and outright drama.
The Kenyan team during the recently concluded Tokyo 2020 olympics failed to impress as anticipated by most citizens.
The performance at the event was termed the worst by the country in all the times the nation has participated in the tournament.
The star athletes, however, managed to restore some pride with exceptional results in the closing stages.
The team jetted back to the country to a cold reception despite finishing as the top African country in the tournament.
No government official, no celebratory welcome was in place to receive the heroes which infuriated Kenyans.
This brings up the big question, do you think it was fair in the manner team Kenya was treated despite their mixed results?

This leaves one wondering, shouldn’t the government then lift the curfew and open the economy?
