The Kenya Rugby sevens team might be headed for a downfall. This is after the team failed to report to training citing problems of unpaid dues and cuts in their salaries.
Kenya Rugby Union has since come up with the decision to slash the players salaries and bonuses. Reasons for the cut are yet to be established as contact with the head officials has proved impossible.
Players who have boycotted training are: Willy Ambaka, Sammy Oliech, Nelson Oyoo, Collins Injera and Eden Agero just to name but a few.
The players salaries have been slashed from a stunning 145,000 shillings to 100,000 shillings. Their performance bonuses have not been spared either.
Players are supposed to receive 50,000 each player for reaching the finals and 20,000 shillings each for cup quarters advancement. For third place they were to receive 40,000 shillings, fourth place 35,000 shillings and fifth place 30,000 shillings.
The storm in the Union comes just as the team prepares for its next two IRB series legs. They will be held in New Zealand and Australia respectively.
The Kenya Rugby Union claims that if negotiations with the players fails, they might opt to bring in new players.
