Wanyama recalled the historic Kenya Sevens maiden and only main cup title in Singapore last  year and urged them to emulate the same diuring the last leg series in London.

“Ningependa kuwaish well…Mukue na hio morale muko nayo..Najua munaeza fanya mambo na mukabeba hii kitu..ni kujiamini tu vile mulibeba Singapore..,” Wanyama said.

Wanyama said he had not physically carried anything along with him but he promised to reward the sevens players with over Sh200, 000 as a morale booster to the team.

It had taken the Kenyan Sevens team 140 tournaments to finally win their maiden main cup title making them only the second African nation after South Africa to win a World Series leg.

They had previously managed to finish runners-up only twice during that period.
