New Shujaa captain Jacob Ojee is confident that the national side is going to improve on their performance heading into the Hamilton and Sydney legs of HSBC.
Ojee takes over the captaincy duties from Harlequins man Eden Agero who led the side in the opening rounds in Dubai and Cape Town where Kenya performed dismally.
“It’s an honour to Captain the Kenya Sevens. It is a huge responsibility but with the current squad, I am confident that we are going to improve on our performance.” Ojee said.
“It’s not completely a new thing for me since I have been representing the 15s team. Our performance has been gradually improving and I know with enough support we shall collect more points in Hamilton” Ojee said
Ojee, Wanjala, and Mwale are the players making a return to the side after a long absence.
Kenya will be looking to turn around their fortunes despite the absence of key senior players who are not in agreement with the governing body on issues to do with their contract terms.
