A mission to fight Gender-Based Violence in Sports 

Earlier this year, the Ministry of Sports spearheaded the late Agnes Tirop Conference in Diani, Kwale County, with the aim of leveling the ground in sports and speak up against gender-based violence, together with other major stakeholders.

This was after the athletics field lost a young rising star and a double world championship medalist, Agnes Tirop, to domestic violence at the only the age of 26 years.

Only 6 months after losing Agnes Tirop, another sportswoman, Damaris Muthee, was found dead in her boyfriend’s house in Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet county this month. Muthee was an international champion who won the Marrakech 20km race in Morocco in 2018. She was also a runner-up in a few competitions including the Casablanca Memorial Rahal 10km, and Maputo Half Marathon in 2018. These are not the only good sportswomen we have lost as a country. In 2021, a day after Agnes Tirop’s demise, Edith Muthoni, 27 years old, was murdered by her husband in a domestic squabble in Kirinyaga county. Therefore, the Nairobi City Marathon is also in support of the mission to continue fighting gender-based violence in sports. We hope these efforts level the ground and more victims come out and speak up. Speak up against gender-based violence!
