Kenya: Riz Topples Sullivan On Second Day At Nakuru

Riz Charania is back in the groove after assuming the overnight lead of the KCB East African Tour at Nakuru Club yesterday. Charania played an impressive round of five under par 68 to move to the summit of Day Two proceedings ahead of Muthaiga's Nicholas Rokoine.

The Windsor man had a false start on Thursday when he played level par but after a good run in yesterday's play, he is leading the event with five under par 141. Yesterday, Charania hit 34 in the front nine and repeated this score in the back nine.

Rokoine is currently lying second on 3 under par 143 followed by Charan Thethy and Day One leader, Sullivan Muthugia on one under par 145. It was a bitter pill to swallow for Sullivan after he played level par in yesterday's play. Muthugia led the event on Thursday with two under. Rokoine played a round of 69 yesterday with a sore of 34 in the first nine and 35 in the back nine.

After a bad start, Dismas Indiza from Mumias was able to move up the leader board to joint fourth after playing four under in yesterday's proceedings. Indiza, ken Abuto of Royal, homeboy Richard Ainley and David Wakhu are now on level par.
