Innocent Simiyu is back at the helm as Kenya Sevens Coach after the intervention of Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa.
In a press statement signed by the CS, the Ministry had a meeting with Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer if the Kenya Rugby Union led by Chairman Thomas Opiyo and CEO Ronald Bukusi which resolved that Simiyu be reinstated as the Kenya Sevens Coach.
Simiyu was relieved of his job last week after he sided with Kenya Sevens Players who had given the Make it Kenya brand message a black out during the Paris Sevens to protest non paid allowanced, a decision that irked Tourism CS Najib Balala who terminated the KRU-Brand Kenya Ksh 20million contract.
After the Monday meeting, the Ministry undertook to work with KRU to clear any ending payments and KRU was tasked consult the ministry before any key decisions are made.
