The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) has given Olympic Champion Eliud Kipchoge 5 days to pay a total of Ksh125 million in tax.
The rogue tax agency has made it clear that Kipchoge is expected to remit the whole amount, payable as tax, as soon as possible failure to which they’ll institute other measures to recover the money.
Kipchoge is the first man to run a 42 Kilometres marathon in under 2 hours, a fete that some other athlete recently tried and failed miserably.
Former Olympian Nick Symonds tried but he couldn’t even last one mile at Kipchoge’s pace.
In the challenge dubbed INEOS159, Kipchoge raked-in more than 400 million shillings, a fete that attracted KRA who invited him to their offices after he jetted-in but the marathoner is said to have declined the invite.
KRA gave the marathoner five days order stressing that no one is exempted from paying tax.
