The pools for the upcoming All-African Games Rugby 7s competition have been unveiled, with Kenya gearing up to compete from March 18th to 21st at the University of Ghana.

Kenya is set to be represented by the Moran’s squad, currently undergoing intensive training at the Moi International Sports Center – Kasarani until their departure on March 13th. The final squad set to represent Kenya will be announced in the coming week.

In Pool A, Kenya’s Morans will face off against Ghana and Egypt, with the fourth opponent yet to be confirmed.

Pool D consists of Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Libya, and Benin.


The African Games, formerly known as the All-Africa Games, are a continental multi-sport event held every four years, sanctioned by the African Union (AU) in collaboration with the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) and the Association of African Sports Confederations (AASC).

The games, which first took place in 1965 in Brazzaville, Congo, have since gained official recognition from the International Olympic Committee.

With the dissolution of the Supreme Council for Sports in Africa in 2013, the organization of the African Games is now overseen jointly by the AU, ANOCA, and AASC.

Having undergone several name changes, the event is now referred to as the African Games. The decision to rename it was made during the Executive Council meeting of the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in January 2012.

In the most recent edition held in Morocco in 2019, a total of 54 countries participated in the prestigious sporting event.
