9 dropped from Kenya's Safari's sevens squads

01 October 2015, 19:01

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.
