Museveni Says Gold Medallist Cheptegei Will Get His 2014 Arrears

President Yoweri Museveni has told the government to pay 2018 Commonwealth double gold medallist Joshua Cheptegei the arrears owed to him from the IAAF world junior gold medal that the athlete earned in  2014. The president, who treated Uganda's team from the Gold Coast Games to a luncheon in Entebbe, also said that other medallists from that period would have their dues paid.
