Kenya Simbas assistant coach Murray Roulston has resigned due to what he calls unfulfilled promises by the Kenya Rugby Union. 

Murray, a New Zealander, announced his resignation on Thursday at RFUEA Grounds after team naming for the Simbas squad to play Zimbabwe on Saturday.

The New Zealander grabbed the microphone immediately after Snook named the team. Kenya Rugby Union director of Rugby Thomas Odundo and Simbas team manager Simiyu Wangila were in attendance. Odundo chose not to talk about the matter.

Murray said they, alongside head coach Ian Snook, have not been paid for so many months and despite promises from the Kenya Rugby Union. 

However, Kenya Rugby Union Treasurer Joshua Aroni said they have paid the coaches all their salaries. KRU will likely release a statement after Murray has officially handed in his resignation. 

Snook remains the head coach with Dominique Habimana being his assistant. Murray - who disclosed that he didn't travel to Morocco last weekend with the Simbas - and Snook were appointed in March to take over from Jerome Paarwater.
