Nairobi - After the two Kenyan teams were announced on Wednesday, nine players
were dropped from Shujaa and Moran teams set to compete at the Safari
Sevens at Safaricom Kasarani Stadium.
Collins Injera, Dan Sikuta, Dennis Ombachi and Lavin Asego (all from
Mwamba) and Strathmore Leos’ Billy Odhiambo and Tony Owuor were all left
out of the teams alongside Homeboyz duo of Leonard Mugaisi and Oscar
Ayodi. Patrice Agunda of Kenya Harlequin was also left out.
Head coach Benjamin Ayimba said that the players were left out because of
injuries but the rumour flying around is said to be that the Kenya Rugby
Union (KRU) Board were the main reason they were axed.
The controversy surrounding the Kenyan Rugby Union continues to grow
as earlier in the year the KRU board revoked Ayimba’s appointment, only
allowing him to handle the team for Safari Sevens.
Besides Aymiba’s appointment issue, there were issues where the
players went on strike and certain sponsorships pulling out then coming
back because of the KRU.
