Troubled times for Kenya Rugby

19 Dec

Kenya Sevens rugby has been rocked by news of the resignation of national sevens coach Paul Treu after the Nelson Mandela Bay sevens in South Africa. The former South African coach has struggled considerably since he took charge of the team last season, and judging from the string of results, this has been one of the reasons that are being speculated as the cause of the South African’s demise as head coach.

In a statement posted on the KRU website, Treu said it has been a very difficult decision, to make but believes it was  the right decision for him at this stage in life.His statement said:”It has just been over a year since I accepted the offer from the Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) to take charge of the team. We have experienced interesting times, that is for sure. “We have had challenges; highs and lows. We know that this is the nature of sport and the game of rugby that we all love. If it was not too easy, we wouldn’t know the joy of achieving our goals and knowing we worked hard to make them happen.

Disgruntlements have been the order of the day in the national set up, ranging from funding, to player administration, work conditions and relationships with the coaches from the national framework. It has been alleged that Treu had once accused his players of taking banned substances. Treu said it was never his intentions to walk away from Kenya Sevens team but KRU board members were on war path of destruction that will not have let him execute his duties as team’s coach. KRU chairman Mwangi Muthee acknowledged that there has been big interference at Kenya Sevens technical bench by some members of the board. Muthee said it is sad that it has now become a business for some board members to hound out coaches as they continue to interfere with the technical bench. “We had great plans with Treu but people who have never played rugby at high level and first team are now experts,” said Muthee. “It’s a high time the rugby fraternity put its feet down and get the right people who can run rugby.”

Supporters of Kenyan rugby are distraught by these latest developments. Many see this as a step in the wrong direction detrimental to the sport as a whole, while some likened this chaos to what was happening to Kenya cricket. Kenya cricket has been on a steady decline since the heights of the 2003 world cup.
