  • Kayange noted that Ayimba helped him develop his rugby profession back in 2006 when he appointed him Kenya Sevens captain, bypassing other experienced players in the team.
  • “When I met him for the first time in early 2006, he dismissed me as slim, not able to cope with the game. That I needed more muscles,” said Kayange, who was shocked when Ayimba picked him captain towards the end of 2006.

Friends and family members of the late former Kenya Sevens head coach, Benjamin Ayimba, Tuesday celebrated his life at a requiem mass held at Our Lady Queen of Peace, South B in Nairobi County.
