Legendary Kenyan Rugby player Collins Injera has announced his retirement from the game after 17 years on the field. In a statement that he shared with the public, Injera stated that his body had indicated to him that it was time to hang his boots.

He took a moment to reflect on some of the most beautiful moments while serving the Kenya Sevens team. Among his top highlights was the honour to play with his brothers Tall and Mike locally and internationally. He further extended his gratitude to various stakeholders in the rugby game. Upto his retirement, he held 2nd place for the highest number of tries (271) scored in the World Rugby Sevens Series.

"Everything must come to an end, sometime. I have always said that I will know it’s time because my body will tell me. And for the past few months it has really ‘spoken’ to me so, finally, I have decided to listen to it," Injera stated.

Collins Injera noted that it was time to dedicate himself to his family. He recounted the crucial role that his wife and kids played in supporting him behind the scenes throughout the years.

"To my wife Chebet and my kids; Chloe, Clyde, and Carl, thank you very much for all the love, support, and understanding you have given me all these years. Those days, weeks, and sometimes months that you have endured without my presence as I was busy chasing my dream across the globe are finally over,' he added.

Injera revealed that he plans to continue with humanitarian work and will join the global satellite business and other exciting ventures along that line.
