This year’s Safari 7s has been called off, the Kenya Rugby Union has said.

In a statement today Friday 6, the KRU said the annual showpiece which had earlier been moved to November 3, has been called off.

This, the union explained, was due to the current political uncertainty in the country which has instilled doubts in all corners. 

Kenya is set to hold a fresh election on October 26 after the country’s Supreme Court nullified the August 8 presidential election that President Uhuru Kenyatta had emerged the winner.

“Planning and preparations were at an advance stage, but after considering alternative dates and, after consultations with both internal and external stakeholders as a result in the prevailing political climate, the LOC had advised the KRU Board it would be prudent to postpone the event,” the statement said.
