Kenya 7s have qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games after defeating Uganda 31-0 to win the Africa Men’s 7s Trophy which also served as the Qualification route.

The win at Bosman Stadium means Kenya 7s have now won the Africa Men’s 7s title for the fifth time. They had won in 2004, 2008, 2013,  2015 and now 2019.

To win the fifth title, Shujaa started off by enjoying possession, they would force their way to the whitewash through Captain Andrew Amonde and the conversion followed for a 7-0 lead. Kenya managed to retain possession from the restart and their pressure saw Uganda reduced to six after a sin-bin to Pius Ogena.

Uganda would get the ball but kicked it into Kenya’s territory and were punished with Vincent Onyala releasing Johnstone Olindi who set up Taabu for the second converted try.

In the second half, Amonde popped to find Jeff Olouch who rounded his markers for the third try for Kenya. Oscar Dennis support on Billy Odhiambo saw him collect the ball from the ruck to score the fourth try.

Minutes later Dennis sold a dummy and crossed over for the fifth try for Kenya. Kenya return to the Olympic which they took part in 2015. Uganda will now proceed to the Olympic qualifiers repechage set for June 2020. They will also take part in the Hong Kong World 7s Series qualifiers in 2020.
