Homeboyz RFC tactician Paul “Pau” Murunga has been appointed Kenya Sevens head coach.

Murunga, who will be deputised by Mwamba Rugby head coach Kevin “Bling” Wambua, takes over from Innocent “Namcos” Simiyu.

The 36-year-old was the deputy Kenya Sevens head coach during the 2015 and 2016 seasons when the team made history, winning its first World Rugby Series event, the Singapore Sevens.

The World Rugby Level II coach also guided Homeboyz to the National Sevens Series victory in 2016 and 2018 besides leading the club’s 15s team to Kenya Cup semi-finals twice and Enterprise Cup victory in 2017.


The former utility forward played for the now defunct Ulinzi Rugby between 2001 and 2004 and captained their sevens team before moving to Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB).

Murunga featured for the KCB between 2005-2009 where he captained the team to Kenya Cup victories in 2006 and 2009 before moving to pioneer the formation of Homeboyz Rugby.
