Newly signed fly-half Johnstone Olindi, Levi Amunga and Shadon Munoko are all handed debuts by KCB for Saturday’s Kakamega 7s.
Olindi joined from Homeboyz, Amunga from Blad while Munoko joined from Mean Machine with their transfers being confirmed this week by the Kenya Cup champions.
Both Olindi and Munoko were part of the Kenya 7s squad during the 2019 World Sevens Series as well as Vincent Onyala and will be a big boost to KCB’s quest for Stanbic 7s title.
