DP hosts Simbas after Sunday triumph

Deputy President William Ruto hosted the Kenya National  rugby 15s team a day after bouncing back to winning ways on Sunday evening with a massive 45-8 win over visiting Zambia.

The game was the climax of what has been a busy three weeks of international rugby at the Nyayo National Stadium.

“We celebrate Kenya Simbas incredible performance in the quest for qualification for the World Cup. We are convinced their tenacity, drive, skill and team-spirit will bear fruits and cement further our country’s position as a sports powerhouse” he said.

Simbas needed to win the game if they were to make it to the Rugby Africa Cup tournament next year that will act as the World Cup 2023 qualification tournament for Africa.

Fijian born utility back Jone Kubu put in a man of the match performance as  Simbas thrashed their opponents in what seemed a one-sided Rugby Africa Cup Pool B match.

Deputy President William Ruto flanked by ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed graced the occasion. Footballers Jesse Were and John Makwata were also present.

Simba’s now qualify for the next stage of the qualifier sailing through as Pool B runner’s up behind Senegal.

The top two teams will proceed to the last eight (knockout stage) which will be the Rugby Africa Cup 2022 and the World Cup qualifiers final round.
