OMBACHI-AUSTRALIANAIROBI, Kenya, Monday 13- In a remarkable turn of events, Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) chairman, Mwangi Muthee maintains that Mike Friday and Chris Brown are still at the helm of the national rugby sevens team.

Muthee told Capital Sports from London in the aftermath of the announcement the Briton has been axed, that instead, the Director of National Squads and Elite Performance Philip Jalang’o is the one to go home instead.

“I’m with the team here (London) and we depart this evening for home. Friday and Brown remain in charge of the team while Gabriel Ooko will replace Jalang’o.

“There is nothing to worry about, everything is alright with this team,” Muthee said on phone from London.

The dramatic events that followed within minutes of each other have exposed the simmering differences amongst the ranks of the KRU.

Jalang’o announced Friday’s sacking in a statement dispatched to newsrooms.
