Weeks ago Kenyan athlete Asbel Kiprop went viral after a video of him cuddling another woman emerged online, leaving many in shock.
The woman, who was later identified as Nancy Rotich Chepsya, was alleged to be the wife of Kiprops pace maker Andrew Rotich.
Weeks later Kiprop has come out to clear the air on what really transpired in an interview with Nick Mudimba.
He says that he broke up with Nancy after he found out she was cheating on him despite being married
“Imagine developing a relationship for three years and the you find the other person is communicating with other guys ? had to confess to my family and the society also so that I will leave without any iniquity(sin)”
On being asked whether he is in good terms with Nancy and her husband, Kiprop says
“We are in good terms with the hubby but my biggest problem right now is that my wife went away.
I want to bring her back but she is so mad about the issue. I told her I was confessing about the affair which lasted 2 years 3 months, so she shouldn’t charge me for it after all she never found out about it ”
On being asked why he never confessed about the affair before the video went viral, Kiprop defends himself by stating that he never got the right moment.
“I wanted to tell her, that the affair was one of the reasons that my performance was going down was the affair but I never really got to it.
I just want to tell her that I have changed and if I ever win this case (against doping charges ) I will come back and run as the star you saw in 2015.
But for now I believe I have nothing more to hide that was my iniquity.”
