Kenya’ s Rugby Union side went home from Madagascar where they finished credible third in the just concluded Africa. Now that they finished third in the tourney having beaten Ivory Coast, former world cup finalists in the third place playoff is indeed a credible effort but that they lost to perennial rivals Uganda in the semifinals seems to be a fact that most major media outlets made very little mention of. The Daily Nation for example while emphasising the many troubles that seemed to be unique to our boys in their preparations for the competition and provides a blow by blow report of Kenya’s 3rd place playoff win doesn’t even list the scoreline of the match played against Uganda. (By the way the match finished 24-12). While its good to show support to our national teams and back them wherever they go its really not in the best interests of the supporters to hide away from when the team actually gets beaten no matter how popular the said sport is.
