He said in a statement, ” It has been a very difficult decision, but I believe it is the right decision for me at this stage in my life.”

He added, ” It has just been over a year since I accepted the offer from the Kenya Rugby Union to take charge of the team. We have experienced interesting times, that is for sure. We have had challenges; highs and lows. We know that this is the nature of sport and the game of rugby that we all love. If it was not too easy, we wouldn’t know the joy of achieving our goals and knowing we worked hard to make them happen.”
He thanked the Kenya Rugby Union and its Chairman Mwangi Muthee saying, ” I commend you for your leadership during some challenging times.”

Muthee thanked Treu for his service, saying, ” I must thank Paul for the professional manner in which he has conveyed his decision to me. Personally I admire his bravery of venturing into unfamiliar waters; leaving the comforts of an advanced rugby nation such as South Africa. A lot of Kenyans respect and will salute him for that.
“We saw a man determined to succeed, his, his vision, character and discipline was remarkable and should rest assured that there are many who learnt from him. Paul will leave a mark and a foundation on which the country’s Sevens development program can build on.”
