Gor Mahia defender Haroun Shakava has been ruled out of Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup.
Shakava has been excused from residential camp as he is nursing an injury that consequently rules him out of the tournament. Zoo Kericho defender Isaac Kipyegon has since been called up in Shakava’s place.
Also called up is Kipyegon’s teammate at Zoo, Nicholas Kipkirui. Kenya is scheduled to play Rwanda in her first match of the tournament on Sunday.
