Before becoming a coach, Ayimba had a glittering career at Kenya 15s and 7s international where he skippered Kenya Cup side Impala Saracens to the Enterprise Cup and Kenya Cup after a 26-year drought.

As the Sevens’ coach, Ayimba’s crowning moment was in 2016 when he led the team to their first World Sevens Series title where they beat Fiji 30-7 at the Singapore Sevens.

Ayimba also had led the national team to the semis of the Dubai Sevens and an appearance in the finals of the Adelaide Sevens, both in 2009.

Early this year, he was retained as the deputy coach of Kenya Harlequins, under head coach Antoine Plasman of Belgium.
