Mwamba RFC successfully held a rugby clinic and a mentoring session to young rugby players on the sidelines of International Francophonie Day celebrations hosted by the French Embassy at Kenya School of Monetary Studies on Sunday 20 March 2016.
Mwamba RFC in partnership with UR7s started the session with a basic rugby skills session with a group of about 50 students then later had touch rugby matches.
UR7s’ Kenny Andola took the kids the paces with the assistance of Cyprian Kuto, Samuel Motari and David Chenge. Kenya sevens international Humphrey Kayange also had a session with the group.
“Some of these kids had no exposure to rugby before and this session has really helped them get into the game. We hope to follow up with their teachers and continue with the sessions later,” Andola told MwambaRugby.Com
Earlier on, the club’s honorary president Mr Alvas Onguru gave a talk about the history and rich heritage of the club to the audience that had over 500 school children, dignitaries and envoys.
The club also hosted the Central Bankof Kenya governor Dr Patrick Njuguna, French Embassy officials and ambassadors from Rwanda, Libya and Liberia at our stand. Dr Njuguna was presented with a club’s sweatshirt which he gladly accepted.
Most of the day was spent interacting with students from various schools, giving talks to groups of inquisitive teachers and other guests at the club’s stand.
