The Kenya National team, Harambee Stars, safely jetted into Paris, France on Friday, May 31, 2019, ahead of their three-week pre-AFCON camp.

The team, which is in camp at the French Rugby Federation, Marcoussis Cedex, held a recovery session on Saturday morning as they officially got their program underway.

Yet another session has been lined up on Saturday evening, with the coach noting that they will be putting in extra effort to be fit for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.

“Our location here in France is favorable. The weather is good and the environment is also free of distractions. We are now working on getting everyone both physically and tactically ready for AFCON,” said Harambee Stars coach Sébastien Migné.

17 players have checked into camp, among them Ismael Gonzalez and Abud Omar, who linked up with the team in France. Zambia based duo of Anthony Akumu and David Owino have also checked in. The remaining contingent is set to report to camp in the course of next week.
