Four nationwide clubs were unsuccessful in their bid to become affiliates of Kenya Rugby Union after Wednesday’s AGM.
Central region duo Meru RFC and Chuka Vikings as well as Western region’s Citam Kisumu and Vihiga Granities missed out.
However, fast-rising AP Rugby became an affiliate.
Commenting on their inclusion, KRU Chairman Oduor Gangla said, "We've watched AP Warriors go from strength to strength over the last three years they've been playing, we are happy to welcome them into the rugby family.
