Jeff Oluoch landed Kenya 7s first try after having a break at the centre following a scrum in the Germany zone. The try was converted by Levy Amunga for a 7-0.
He doubled the lead picking a ball from the ruck to score after Nelson Oyoo was brought down close to the try line.
The final try of the opening half was scored by Alvin Otieno who received a long pass from Amunga and had acres of space ahead of him to score an easy try. Amunga converted the try for a 19-0 lead.
Germany pulled back with a converted try but Shujaa stretched the lead through Alvin Otieno as he fend off his markers following a powerful run and raced on to score for a 24-7 lead.
Tries by Tim Lichtenberg and Phil Szczesny cut the gap to a seven pointer but Shujaa held on to reach the last four.
