Roy Nandwa, has officially become the third member of the Bungoma Wazalendo Rugby Franchise to play for the Kenya Under 20.
This comes a week after he made his Kenya Cup debut for Menengai Oilers, coming in as a second half substitute in the 60th minute in their win against Masinde Muliro University.
For the 18 year old Menengai Highschool Alumnus, the journey to the top has had it’s fair share of challenges, but he has been resilient, always ready to improvise, adapt and work hard.
Today, that hardwork paid off, when he was brought into the game against Senegal in the 63rd minute. It’s a dream come true for the young man, since he has always wanted to don the national team jersey. To crown it off, Kenya Under 20 beat the Senegal Under 20 team 50-3.
They’re set to play against Madagascar later next week, and hopefully they win and defend the Barthes Under 20 cup which Kenya won in 2019. With the absence of their main rivals, Namibia, victory for Kenya looks assured.
He could potentially, become the first Wazalendo member, to play at the Junior World Rugby Tournament should Kenya win against Madagascar.
The dream is not yet over for the young man, and with consistency and hardwork, he could feature for the Senior national team.
May God bless the young man.
Here at Wazalendo we say HONGERA.
