Ameacha mjane na mtoto mmoja, rafikiye Jimmy Munene aliandika ujumbe wa rambirambi akisema.

“What is this pattern that is becoming the first week of March😭. Tony Onyango Baba Shane rest well brother, I thank God for gifting us with your presence. My Condolences to your young family, Maria and Shane.

Our journey goes back to primary school, can’t remember whether was a class or 2 ahead of you. Then reunited with rugby after high school. One thing that stood out from our last conversation was your changing view of how to support the game and Simba’s by extension. During the trials last year you passed at the chance of joining the team as you were categorical that you needed to manage your load and rest, noting that you were stretched in 2018 into 2019. A very noble and honest opinion not what you hear from your modern day player. Leaving the conversation with I will be back to support the journey to France whether as a player or otherwise.

2Q==

Then you’d show up once in a while to support the young KCB cubs Kimwele & Co at training stating indeed they were the today & tomorrow (you believed in them), we’d chat about sports marketing, player branding, growth of players on and off the pitch, raising the brands of our players something you hoped for the next generation. We talked about Decathlon where you worked then and how you could support the Simba’s. Progressive talk.

Shine on your way brother, now our guardian angel. Connect the energies for us, link the systems for us. Thank you the memories in that Simba’s Jersey, I was a big fan, made it look so easy and sweet. RIP brother #Simba.” Aliandika.

The Zimbabwe national team‚ currently playing in African World Cup qualifiers‚ slept on the streets outside their hotel in Tunisia on Monday night because of poor facilities and lack of funds.

“Rugby Africa has been made aware of the difficulties encountered by the Zimbabwean Rugby team – the Sables – with regards to their accommodation in Tunisia‚” Rugby Africa said in a statement.

On social media‚ former Zimbabwean Minister for Education‚ Sport‚ Arts and Culture David Coltart confirmed the news‚ saying he had received confirmation from the father of one of the players in the team.

Images of players on the streets with their belongings have also been circulating widely on social media on Tuesday.

Some reports suggest they were asked to pay a 20-euro (R320) visa fee per man at the airport‚ which they couldn’t afford and were held there for 10-hours after the squad’s passports were retained by officials.

In a voice note sent to Capitalk FM‚ Zimbabwe flanker Takudzwa Mandiwanza said the trip had been a ‘shambles’.

“We have not been paid our daily allowances for our duration in Kenya‚ including our match fees that we did not receive. Now we’re in Tunisia‚ we were detained at the airport for close to six hours‚ with no allowances given to us.

“If it wasn’t for the coach buying us sandwiches and a few drinks from his own money‚ we’d be hungry right now. The situation is very frustrating and disheartening.”

Top 5 Five memorable Kenya – Zimbabwe rugby clashes

Overall, the two sides have met 19 times with Zimbabwe’s Sables dominating the head to head, posting 12 wins to the Simbas 7
Since first meeting in 1981, Kenya and Zimbabwe have shared some great, memorable moments on the rugby pitch. This rivalry will be reignited on Saturday when the Simbas host the Sables at Nairobi’s RFUEA Ground.

Overall, the two sides have met 19 times with Zimbabwe’s Sables dominating the head to head, posting 12 wins to the Simbas 7. The two most recent tests between the two sides have gone in favor of the Simbas, and with record scores.

Here are five memorable encounters between the two sides.

1 MAY 1985
Kenya 13 Zimbabwe 15
RFUEA Ground, Nairobi

This was the third meeting between the two sides, Zimbabwe having won 32-24 at the same venue four years earlier before posting a 15-12 win in Harare on 27 March 1982. With Kenya leading 13-12 and virtually no time left on the clock, Zimbabwe, who would two years later be Africa’s sole representatives at the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987, won and successfully drilled home a penalty to win the game.

28 SEPTEMBER 2002
Kenya 19 Zimbabwe 12
RFUEA Ground, Nairobi

The two sides were meeting for the first time since the Sables put the Simbas to the sword in a 42-7 Rugby World Cup qualifier at the same venue in 1993. The Benjamin Ayimba captained side finally succeeded where the class of 1985 had fallen agonizingly close, the 19-12 result marking a first ever test victory over the Zimbos

17 JULY 2010
Zimbabwe 18 Kenya 23
Harare Sports Club, Harare

Trailing 8-18 at the interval, a late second half flourish saw the Simbas beat their hosts 23-18, the first ever win on Zimbabwean soil for the side coached by Michael “Tank” Otieno who played in the 1985 fixture.

6 JULY 2014
Kenya 10 Zimbabwe 27
Mahamasina Stadium, Antananaravivo, Madagascar

This was the 2015 Rugby World Cup qualification competition  being played as a round robin tournament in Madagascar. The Simbas had started this competition with a 29-22 win over favorites Namibia before blanking hosts Madagascar 34-0 in their second outing. They went into the final round of matches top of the log and only 80 minutes away from a historic appearance on the global stage in a year’s time.

They needed just the solitary point from this match to reach the finals in England and Wales but their ambitions were cut short by a determined Zimbabwe side beat them 27-10, a sad ending to what had been a promising campaign. The Simbas would eventually finish third, Zimbabwe claiming second place and a chance to qualify via the repechage as Namibia’s 89-10 whitewash of Madagascar earned them an appearance at a fifth successive World Cup.

9 JULY 2016
Zimbabwe 15 Kenya 61
Police Grounds, Harare

Leading 24-15 at half time, the Simbas piled on 37 unanswered second half points to crush hosts Zimbabwe 61-15 in Gold Cup action at the Police Grounds in Harare on Saturday 9 July 2016, only their second ever win on Zimbabwean soil, a record points haul for the Jerome Paarwater coached side.

Kenya Sevens Team Suffered From Lack Of Adequate Preparations – Innocent Simiyu

Kenya Sevens team head coach Innocent Simiyu has cited inadequate preparations and strike as their main undoing in the just ended World Sevens Series.

Shujaa finished 12th in the standings with just 63 points after failing to hit their target of at least 10 points per leg in the 10-round circuit.

The team arrived in the country to a low-key reception on Monday following another disastrous campaign at the final leg of the 2016-17 season in London, where they picked just five points.

The Sevens players went on strike a week before the opening series in Dubai and the team also saw strength and conditioning coach Ian Gibbons resign, developments that Simiyu said were detrimental to their plans for the season.

However, he said the past season was basically meant for setting up structures following his appointment just before the series commenced.

“This year was more of laying a foundation and setting up the structures so that we can have a platform to compete at the World Cup and Commonwealth Games,” noted Simiyu.

“The most important thing ahead of the World Cup is to have a thorough pre-season campaign since, for once, we have a chance to.”

Director of national squads and elite performance, Ian Mugambi, said the board will review the team’s performance this season in the next few weeks to enable them plan ahead for next season.

“It will be a challenging season ahead. With the Commonwealth Games and World Cup Sevens coming up, we must start our preparations early and get the team in good shape physically,” said Mugambi.

SYDNEY SEVENS: Kenya Sevens Drop To Challenge Cup After Dismal Start

Kenya will play in the Challenge Trophy quarterfinals at the Sydney Sevens after falling to a second successive loss in Pool A action on Saturday morning, falling 14-7 to currents HSBC Sevens World Series leaders South Africa.

The first half was closely fought, Shujaa edging the South Africans in the physical contests and frustrating them with a great defensive effort.

Collins Injera, caught in possession, releasing the ball to Augustine Lugonzo who touched down, Agero converting as Kenya led 7-0 at the break.

Agero would visit the sin-bin in mid second half and the South Africans soon scored, Seabelo Senatla finding himself in possession after being played in by impact sub Rosco Speckman.

Senatla would race clear to score under the posts with Justin Geguld ( who was part of the South African Elite Player Development team that won the 2012 Safari Sevens in Nairobi) converted to tie things.

Senalta would land his second try half a minute later, Geguld with the twos to give South Africa the lead and the eventual win.

In the first game, Kenya surrendered a 12-0 lead, losing 19-12 to England in their opening Pool A encounter.
