Kenya Rugby Union headquarters in Nairobi on Thursday were raided by Auctioneers who walked away with property worth million of shillings, according to Daily Nation

Speaking to the Daily Nation, KRU Chairman Oduor Gangla, who is currently in Japan for the World Rugby General Assembly 2019, said it is an old debt with sources saying the sh 4 million debt increased to SH 10 million after extra charges.

The debt is owed to Emi Travel agency according to Daily Nation.

"The incident is unfortunate but there is nothing we could do. We access most of these services on credit when the government does not pay on time, then we encounter such incident," Gangla said.

Among the things taken away by the auctioneers include computers, office stuff like tables, chairs, a fridge and a dispenser as well as the Union car.

KRU is set to hold a press conference on Friday to name a Kenya 7s team that will travel to South Africa for Africa 7s and the Union officials are expected to address Thursday's incident.

According to documents seen by Raga House, Kenya Rugby Union submitted a Ksh194m budget to the Sports Fund but received only Ksh 3.3m that was paid directly to the Kenya U20 players.
