After Okombe victory this is what happened to Kenya 7’s star Collins Injera

If personally ‘teaching’ President Uhuru Kenyatta a few rugby tricks after bringing back home the Okombe was not enough, Kenya 7s star Collins Injera has landed himself a special feature on CNN.

Injera, who serves as Kenya Sevens’ Vice Captain, scored two of the six tries that saw Kenya beat world-renown team 30-7 in the final of the Singapore Rugby Sevens last Sunday.

Thanks to his stellar performance, CNN World Rugby has decided to run a special feature on him, with the first episode going live on Friday.

During the CNN interview, the 29-year-old Daystar University graduate reveals that he wants to be the top try-scorer globally.

“It is my dream. When I started playing this game, I remember telling one of the reporters that I want to be the top try-scorer in the world, and they say it’s a huge task, it’s a huge task. So, they said that Santiago Gomez Cora had already set the mark at 230, and I just know that I’m able to realise the dream,” Injera said.

During the show, the impressive sportsman, who started playing rugby in Vihiga High School, also proceeds to dish out workout tips to aspiring rugby players.

Christina Macfarlane’s one on one with Injera will start at 12:30 on Friday, but it will re-air at the following times:  Saturday April 23  at 05:00 EAT and 16:30 EAT; Monday April 25  at 06:30 EAT, Tuesday April 26 at 19:30 EAT and Wednesday 27 April at 11:30 EAT.
