At the same time, his beaten Kenyan rivals, world champion, Abel Mutai and bronze winner, Wilson Kipsang, arrived back home on the same day to a warm but muted reception still stung from losing the top medal.
Ugandasports.org reported from Kampala that Museveni ordered State House to write cash cheque of Ush200m to avoid the delays his pledges take to reach their recipients with instructions the cash should be awarded to him before he left the special welcome at State House.
Kiprotich who forced Kirui and London Marathon titleholder, Kipsang to the minor places in the podium on Sunday is also due to receive $60,000 (Sh5.022m) from his sponsor Nike as a winning bonus.
That translates to Sh11.718m and counting for the 2 hours, 8 minutes and 1 second he took to stun his more illustrious neighbours with companies including the daily New Vision publication that launched a funds drive to reward the star rolling over to be aligned to the second Ugandan gold winner.
To commensurate with his new financial status, President Museveni also elevated the 23-year-old Prisons warden to the rank of Assistant Superintendent! How his beaten rivals wished they would cross over to Uganda!
Beijing Olympics champion, Pamela Jelimo, who lost her crown in London last Saturday has owned up to a tactical error that cost her the chance to cement a legacy in women 800m running.
Speaking upon her return from the Olympics on Wednesday, the World Indoor Champion expressed her eagerness to make up for the London distress at future events including the upcoming 2016 Games in Rio-de-Janeiro.
"It was a small error and I do not want to say that I'm not in good shape but it cost me. I'm still the same and I believe in myself and I will do the best next time," Jelimo who ran 1:57.59 for fourth in her defence where Russia's Mariya Savinova won in 1:56.19 conceded.
"Sometimes the Ethiopians are strong, sometimes the Kenyans," Haile Gebrselassie, the finest distance runner of the modern era, said on Friday. "We understand each other, without Kenya there's no Ethiopia. We need each other."
Gebrselassie, 39, had hoped to conclude his career by running in Sunday's race but time and injury mean he can no longer run the times needed to qualify for a strong Ethiopian team.He lost his world marathon record to Kenyan Patrick Makau in Berlin last September and said on Friday he would not be running in next year's Moscow world championships.
