Its very fair !
Indeed what a gent he was , he tried very hard for many years to create a fair sport with no politics or tribalism , coached so many athletes and mentored many coaches. Still even after 50+ years cynics would not give him due credit. He knew exactly what was going on in terms of corruption in the federation and i remember him telling me 15 years or so ago that if they could get rid of the corruption and tribalism in the federation Kenya would be a world lead in almost all disciplines. Sadly those problems are as evident now as they were back then , just a new set of actors !
