SPORTS , CITIZENSHIP AND ECONOMICS?

Here is my querry, why does the our government have issues with runners defecting..? The way i see it, much better to earn your income through legit hard work (in this case running)than be like our current government who condon all sorts of corruption.

While i feel terribe that runners are defecting.. i dont blame them, its what everyone else is doing in different ways to earn a living. We all know that they are kenyans, dont we?...does having a paper that says otherwise change things? What it does is give them the oppportunity to gain the rewards that our country does not provide. Lets face it, we dont give our sportsmen enough attention and we dont encourage or praise them...
Maybe we can learn abit or two from the western world who devote so much of their energies into building a generation of sportsmen.

That said, more 'kudos' to those who invest back in the country and yes, build it up through their hard legit work!!.
