NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 16 – Veteran Andrew Amonde will skipper Kenya’s Shujaa team at this weekend’s Safari Sevens in a squad that also features Kenya’s all-time try scorer Collins Injera.

Kenya’s second string the Moran’s will be captained by experienced Jeff Oluoch in a team that has youngsters Johnstone Olindi and Herman Humwa among others.

Other seasoned players who are back in the squad are Willy Ambaka and Nelson Oyoo.
