Injuries

Broke a bone in his right hand in January 2014, which required a metallic plate to be inserted in his arm - sidelined until March 2014. (ghettoradio.co.ke, 14 Mar 2014; nation.co.ke, 24 Apr 2016)

The little finger on his left hand is crooked as a result of a rugby injury. (nation.co.ke, 24 Apr 2016)


National league: National Sevens Circuit
Reason: "I am 6ft 2in tall, which made me always assume I was too tall for rugby. In fact, in high school, I dedicated myself to basketball. After high school in 2002, the late (rugby player) Andrew OKWARO (KEN), who was my neighbour, convinced me to try out rugby. I guess he saw some potential in me and I am forever grateful that he took interest in me." (standardmedia.co.ke, 30 Nov 2013; nation.co.ke, 24 Apr 2016)
