Former Kenya international Collins Injera lands government job – Nation

Former rugby international Collins Injera landed a job in Parliament, a few months after hanging up his boots.

The decorated star is now an employee of the Parliamentary Services Committee (PSC), working in the Senate Liaison office as a contract administrative officer since last month, according to multiple sources who confirmed that he is now a civil servant.

Injera, who is a communication professional, has a degree in Public Relations from Daystar University.

He called it a day on January 24 after an illustrious and stellar rugby career, the highlight of which was winning the Singapore 7s in 2016 alongside his older brother Humphrey Khayange under the late Benjamin Ayimba.

In the Singapore 7s cup final against Fiji, Injera scored two tries as Shujaa beat Fiji 30-7 to win their only title to date at the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.

The 36-year-old made his debut at the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in Hong Kong in March 2007 and went on to make 424 appearances in 15 years.

He scored 279 tries, second only to England and Great Britain great Dan Norton, and amassed 1,443 points on tour, which ranks him ninth on the all-time list.

The rugby legend also made two appearances at the Olympic Games and played in four Rugby World Cup Sevens tournaments.

Injera has been inducted into two Halls of Fame this year, with the Melrose Hall of Fame being inducted on April 6 at a gala dinner at the Greenyards during the world’s oldest sevens tournament in Scotland. The induction into Scotland preceded his induction into Fiji.

His stellar performances led to his being awarded the Order of the Golden Warrior (OGW) along with his brother Kayange in 2010.

His World Cup highlight was in 2009 in Dubai where Shujaa stormed into the semi-finals of the tournament after crushing Fiji in the quarter-finals winning 26-7 with Injera scoring five tries, but Shujaa, however, missed against Argentina in the semifinals losing 12. -0.

On April 18, Injera was appointed as the defense and attack coach at his former club Mwamba RFC.
