Amonde to captain Shujaa at the Tokyo Olympics

KCB Flanker Andrew Amonde will wear the armband for Shujaa during the upcoming Olympics Games set for Tokyo in Japan.

The experienced skipper is one of four survivors from the squad that did duty at the Rio Olympics in 2016 where they finished 11th overall.

Also returning for their second Olympic appearances are Collins Injera, Billy Odhiambo and Willy Ambaka.
