Kotoi Johnston Kerio says "Why are you doing a petition when he has qualified......deal head on with the masterminds who blocked him ,'
Koech Daiv says "Etyang should just go to seek Qatar citizenship and represent them, aache hii corrupted system of Kenya,"
Nick Adams wrote "Justice for Etyang...the boy will perform mervelously well and will re-write the story of that family,"
Brian Kibet wrote "Confused politician. Ak/ Olympics body got nothing to do with parliament 🤦🏿♂️, wrong place to seek remedy at this point. Now if you want to use parliament , maybe introduce a bill that govern athletes & their salaries,"
Chris says "This is now what we call representation. Athletics Kenya needs to give a comprehensive statement on the issue. It is not enough to ride on the ignorance of young athletes who might as well have an opportunity to be well informed of the preparation process including conducting a test,"
Dennis Melly says "for the love of your constituent's please support Etyang's mother with at least 500,000Ksh as you table the issue on parliament, 2022 ni wewe tena Joshua ,"
