New Zealander Paul Feeney has quit his role as Kenya’s technical
director, citing uncertainty over the coronavirus situation and the need
to be with his family, the country’s rugby union said in a statement
on Friday.

Feeney, a former Fiji Sevens and Stormers coach took over the
job last September, and also led the sevens team to qualify for the
postponed 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

“It is unfortunate that Feeney has been unable to complete the
ongoing sevens world series due to the Covid-19 pandemic”, the Kenya
Rugby Union said in the statement.

The process of finding a replacement is underway.

In March, World Rugby postponed all the remaining tournaments in the HSBC sevens world series due to the illness outbreak.
