• Ndale, who served as women's director for the past four years, has promised to strengthen the ladies' game and ensure that it's entrenched at the grassroots.

Kenya Rugby Union goes to the polls on Tuesday to elect a vice chairman, Secretary and two directors at their Annual General Meeting at RFUEA ground.
The elections were due in March but were postponed as several clubs had not aligned to the Sports Act.
Over 20 clubs will now vote on Tuesday after meeting the requirements set by the Sports Registrar.
The vice chairman position will be the most keenly contested with directors Peris Mukoko and Moses Ndale going for the coveted position after the incumbent, Thomas Opiyo chose to keep off.
Ndale, who served as women's director for the past four years, has promised to strengthen the ladies' game and ensure that it's entrenched at the grassroots.
Ndale said his proudest achievement at KRU is to see Lionesses get opportunities internationally and stakeholders starting to get enthusiastic about women's rugby.
"The women's game has grown tremendously. We started the Kenya Cup League which Mwamba won while Lionesses qualified for the Tokyo Olympics. Our 15's team is making strides in the game and the potential in the game is great. We need to go further and qualify for more international tournaments,” said Ndale.
Mukoko, a former referee and player has outlined four pillars in her campaign.
Key on her agenda, if elected, will be a clear pathway and development with a special focus on age-grade rugby for both genders.
"We need to cast our nets wider and introduce the sport from an early age, which will in turn feed both the national under 20 and under 17 — both boys and girls," she said.
Mukoko said integrity, accountability and governance will be key if the union is to make strides to attract sponsorships.
“Bringing back sponsors to the game is something that we really need to focus on," added Mukoko.
The race for the secretary's position has attracted incumbent Ian Mugambi against director Ray Olendo.
The race for the two-director slots has attracted four candidates including incumbents Hillary Itela and Oscar Mango as well as Leslie Mwangale and Charles Chege.
