Infighting exposed at Kenya Rugby Union

12 October 2014, 16:48

Nairobi - The chairman of the Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) has accused some of the union's newly-elected board members of harming the development of the game.

Mwangi Muthee, KRU chairman, made the scathing criticism in an interview with the Daily Nation on Saturday.

“Since March when we had the Annual General Meeting to vote in new officials, rugby hasn’t moved an inch. We have been either stagnating or back pedalling,” said Muthee.

“When you’re elected as a board member you have a lot of power. The choice is yours to either do the right thing or to do destructive things.”

It is believed that organisation’s board is currently split with half backing Muthee and the other half supporting Philip Jalang’o, who was elected as vice chairman in March. The exact details of the rift are not known.

Jalang’o denied Muthee’s claim that he was causing any harm to the game, saying that he was working to make the board more harmonious.

“There have been some incidents, but we are working on fixing them because these things only reflect back to us as a union,” said Jalang’o.

“It would be better for us to work together irrespective of whether we like each other or not as individuals.”

Jalang’o is expected to run for chairman when Muthee’s second and final term comes to an end in February next year.
