Kenya’s rugby superstar Collins Injera on Tuesday, January 24, 2023 retired from playing both international and club rugby.

In a long social media post, Injera stated that he has always had the feeling that he would know when the time for his retirement would come and explained that his body has spoken to him in the recent past and he now feels like it is the appropriate time.
“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.”

“As hard as this is for me, after 17 years of literal blood, sweat and tears, it’s time to step away from this great game that has given me so much more than I could ever ask for.” read part of his statement.
Injera pointed out that the sport has opened many doors for him, some of which he never thought possible. He also expressed his appreciation to his family for their support while he was busy going after his dreams.

“Thank you, Lord, for giving me the strength, opportunities, and protection to be able to play the game I really love for this long.”
