The Kenya Rugby national team head coach Jerome Paarwater has been relieved of his duties.
The Simbas tactician abruptly parted ways with the Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) months ahead of crucial 2019 Rugby World Cup qualifiers.
In a statement to media, the KRU today confirmed the release of Jerome Paarwater from his role as Head Coach of the Simbas.
KRU Board acknowledged Paarwater’s significant contribution to the Kenya Rugby Union, and in particular to the Simbas coaching and management team since his arrival in late 2012.
“Jerome has been a key influence for the Simbas, guiding the team up the world rankings and making the team a formidable force on the continental stage. He has certainly been part and parcel of the country’s continued emergence in the longer version of the game.”
KRU is expected to announce his replacement at a later time.
Under Paarwater (pictured), the Kenya national rugby team has had its hugest success ever.
