With Safaricom Sevens due to take place next week, Kenyan Rugby Sevens is once again reeling from drama with the national squad reportedly on strike due to contractual issues with the Kenyan Rugby Union”Kenya7s going on strike is a lame excuse and unacceptable. We are revisiting our contractual engagements not only with the players but also the technical bench to enter into a performance agreement….if a player form goes down or does not meet the targets, he will not be paid same case applies to the technical bench,”Mwangi Muthee, KRU Chairman
“We met as players and decided to call off everything to do with Kenya 7s until we start being respected and well taken care of. In short, we are on strike.”This was the bold message by the senior players of the Kenya Sevens team after a meeting on Tuesday “We need to be respected and taken care of. We can’t be dealing with the same issues every year and they (KRU) expect us to perform,” they stated.
