The announcement by Kenya Rugby Union management that it has ended the Kenya Cup, Championship and nationwide has elicited mixed reactions from rugby clubs.


In a press statement released on Friday evening, the KRU Board resolved to end the season with no winner to be declared for the 2019/20 campaign across all leagues.

KRU said the decision was made due to the format of the competitions which heads into the knock-out stage after the regular season which means a winner cannot be picked as per the regular season results.

Philip Wamae, the KCB team manager welcomed the decision, saying it is logical despite the situation. “It is quite unfortunate but it was the only logical solution to ensure we can commence next season’s preparations on time in order to compete adequately.

"I believe that the relegation and promotion solution is also the best, given that the league was over for the relegated teams and playoff is important for the teams fighting for promotion,” he said.
