The Commonwealth Games gold medalist Moses Ndiema Kipsiro on Wednesday traveled to South Africa to participate in a road race.
Dominic Otuchet, President of the Uganda Athletics Federation (UAF) confirmed to URN that Kipsiro together with Timothy Toriotich will participate in the road race on Sunday in Cape Town.
Kipsiro is using the event to fine tune ahead of a big race in the United States of America later this month.
In March Kipsiro refused to travel to China when he withdrew from the IAAF World Cross Country Championship after claiming that one of the athletics coaches Peter Wemali had sent him a death threatening message.
Kipsiro reported in 2014 that Wemali had been sexually harassing young female athletes while in camp ahead of an African Cross Country Championship. Investigations where carried out and Wemali was cleared by UAF.
However, other female athletes aged 15, 16 and 17 years reported a separate case in Kapchorwa last month that the same coach had sexually harassed them and he was arrested. Medical reports presented in Court Kapchorwa last month indicated that the coach had infected the athletes with HIV/Aids. Wemali will reappear in Court on May 14th in Kapchorwa.
