The Kenya Rugby Union(KRU) has allegedly forced the players of the Rugby sevens to sign apology letters in order to be paid their dues.
There have been issues between the team and the Kenya Rugby Union after the union failed to pay them their bonuses and salaries even after the sponsor Brand Kenya had released funds to that effect .
The team decided to block out the brand Kenya message as a result of not receiving the money as promised only to later realize that Kenya Rugby union had used their money to repay an overdraft in the bank stating that the players would have to wait for them to receive other funds.
In the apology the Kenya Rugby Union claims that the government through the ministry of tourism has committed to support the Kenya sevens team for a period of three years
Here is the letter:
