Kenya Rugby Union on Tuesday announced the resignation of Kenya Simbas head coach Paul Odera with immediate effect. Odera has since distanced himself saying he's still on the job as far as he's concerned.
"The Kenya Rugby Union Board has accepted Paul Odera's resignation from his role as Head Coach of the Kenya Men's National Fifteens Team, The Simbas."
"The Kenya Rugby Union would like to extend its sincere thanks to Paul for his exemplary service during his time with the Kenya U20s and most recently, the Simbas. We wish him well in his future pursuits," said KRU.
He resigned weeks after leading Kenya Simbas to 2022 Rugby Africa Cup quarters that doubles up as the final qualification for the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
The former Under 19 coach was named as Simbas coach back in 2019 and tasked to lead the team to France 2023 after New Zealander Ian Snook and KRU parted ways following the 2019 Rugby World Cup miss.
There were no reasons given as to why Odera stepped down but Raga House is in the process of finding out. Stay with us.
