After missing a whole Kenya Cup season and National Sevens Circuit, Jacob Ojee is back.

KCB Sevens Coach Dennis Mwanja has named the Kenya Simbas speedster as one of those going to this weekend’s Driftwood 7s in Mombasa.

Ojee returns to the sevens fold for the first time since 2015’s Driftwood 7s where he broke his leg that saw him stay out for a whole year. He returned to help KCB win the 2017 Kenya Cup and was one of the key performers for the Simbas in 2017.

The KCB squad has all faces their fans want to see this season after a Plate-winning campaign in 2016.

Kenya Simbas winger Darwin Mukidza will be the vice-captain while Martin Owilah is the captain. The two were contracted players by Kenya 7s in 2016/2017 season.

Kenya 15s flanker and KCB tour to South Africa captain Davies Chenge is in the team so is Brian Omondi, Stafford Abeka, Ken Moseti, Vincent Onyala and Benjamin Kimwele.

Ahmed Shaban is also included as the bankers prepare for pool C that has Impala Saracens, Mean Machine and Mombasa RFC.

Last year’s Driftwood 7s won by Kenya Harlequins saw KCB beat Impala 17-5 to win the Plate.

KCB: 1. Davis Chenge 2. Brian Omondi 3. Martin Owilah (C) 4. Stafford Abeka 5. Collins Nato 6. Samuel Asati 7. Ken Moseti 8. Ahmed Shaban 9. Darwin Mukidza (VC) 10. Jacob Ojee 11. Vincent Onyala 12. Benjamin Ojema 13. Michael Kimwele
