A gang raided the Nairobi home of two-time world marathon champion Catherine Ndereba and robbed her off household valuables and money.
Speaking about the incident, police spokeswoman Gatiria Mboroki said that Catherine was at home at the time of the raid with her family but they were not wounded in the Monday night incident.
Efforts to trace the attackers who escaped on foot proved futile as it was raining heavily. It is unclear how the robbers broke into the heavily fenced home.
According to the police, the thugs escaped with Catherine’s Kenya prisons uniform where she still serves as a warden.
Catherine Ndereba has won the marathon at the world championships twice,won two silver medals at the olmpics and she is also a four-time Boston marathon winner.
