Kakamega County rugby sevens champions St Peter’s Mumias are aiming at nothing but top accolades at the Western Region Secondary School Games which kick off on Monday in Vihiga County.

Head coach Livondo Shimenga is predicting a tough competition but has warned opponents to prepare for a tough duel as “nothing will stop them from marching to the finals set for Mombasa”.

St. Peter’s beat Mukumu Boys 26-5 to retain the trophy at their backyard last weekend.

“I’m sympathizing for those teams who will meet us because we are not going to show mercy to anyone.

“I know all the teams who have qualified for regionals are champions but woe unto them because this is St Peter’s,” he gloated.

Shimenga who moved to St Peter’s from Chavakali in 2007 has hailed the support accorded to the team by the school Principal Cosmas Nabongolo and the entire St Peter’s fraternity.

“I appreciate the support the school management has given this team; both financially and materially.”

Last year, St Peter’s won every title at their disposal – all the way from the county level to the nationals – making their presence felt at the East Africa School Games held in Tanzania.

Shimenga has at the same time lashed out at the Ministry of Education for programming the rugby 7s and 15s to be played concurrently in term 1 and prohibiting students from competing in both.

With the regional games around the corner, all eyes will be on the Saints to see whether they will repeat last year’s heroics.
