Kenya Simbas head coach Jerome Paarwater has moved to explain his absence in the team during training days.
Speaking after Saturday’s win over Tunisia, Paarwater said, “Unfortunately Kenya Rugby has a partnership with Western Province and my first job is Western Province which is where I get my salary from. I think we’ve done well this year because am busy with lots of things at home including my job.”
Prior to the game, KRU CEO Ronald Bukusi was asked about Paarwater’s absence saying “it’s something we are looking at very actively to ensure our teams are best prepared for whatever challenge they take.”
Paarwater always checks into the country one or two days before the match and a recent photo of him with KCB RFC in South Africa as Kenya was preparing for the Tunisia clash caused an uproar on social media.
The Western Province U21 head coach says with modern technology everything is possible.
“With modern technology, you can send stuff then I can analyze them so am happy with what am doing obviously it depends with Kenya Rugby on whether they are happy with what am doing,” concluded Paarwater.
The Kenya Rugby Union and South Africa-based Western Province entered into a partnership in 2012 that saw Paarwater come in as Simbas head coach.
