Uganda golden man Joshua Cheptegei has proved that the saying you only reap where you did sow can come to life after disassociating himself from the Uganda police force shortly after sending him a congratulatory message.
The long distance runner who has made headlines since Sunday April 8th after he won a gold medal in the Common Wealth games held in Gold Coast, Australia denied part of the police anymore.
“Congratulations to our police officer Joshua Cheptegei for winning another gold medal in 10,000 meter race,” wrote police on social media.
Just when they thought they had made an achievement the young star that seems to care less about them as he succeeds replied to them saying he quit the forces.
“I am no longer in the force” he replied on social media.
Cheptegei came to light during the IAAF World Cross Country Championships held in Kampala in March 2017 where he reportedly suffered a stitch during the race where he was in the lead, denying him a chance to the gold medal and paving way for Kenya’s Geoffrey Kamworor.
He however proved his critics wrong in August 2017 when he won silver at the IAAF World Championships in London. He came second after England’s Mo Farah.
