Kenya Lionesses will kick-off the Africa Women’s Sevens campaign in Gaberone, Botswana against Senegal at 12.44pm Kenyan time on Saturday 26 May before completing their Pool A assignments against Madagascar at 2.20pm the same day.
From the squad that played at Hong Kong 7s and at the Gold Coast commonwealth games, Wambua has effected four changes bringing on Prisca Nyerere, Diana Awino, Sophia Ayieta and Sarah Oluche in place of injured Rachel Mbogo, Stacy Owuor, Doreen Remour and Celestine Masinde.
The ten team tournament, which will be streamed live on the Kwese Sports Facebook page sees teams split into two pools of three teams each with the third pool comprising four teams.
Defending champions South Africa pulled out of the tournament as they are preparing for the Sevens World Cup to be held in USA in July.
Matches in Pools A and B will be played on a round robin basis while Pool C teams will play a semifinal and a pool final. Additionally, matches in this pool will be in sudden death extra time in the event of a draw.
Teams will then be reseeded ahead of the knockout phase on day two of the tournament.
