Kenya Rugby mid-season transfer window closed on January 4th 2020 at 11:59 pm but one key transfer looks like it fell through at the last minute. 

Walter Okoth’s move to Kabras didn’t happen as of the last day with Kenya Rugby Union publishing a list of 43 players who had moved. None to Kabras.

Raga House understands Top Fry Nakuru wanted Kabras Sugar to splash up to Ksh1 million for the transfer of Walter Okoth.

The matter is now with Kenya Rugby Union with Okoth already training in Kakamega.

Top Fry Nakuru director of rugby Eddy Moseti said:

“There are many reasons why the transfer hasn’t been completed. A lot of things happened in between and the dispute is now at the Union.”

“We are definitely not happy at the manner the transfer was handled. Walter needs to clear with the club.”

“We want everything to go well for Okoth because he’s going to study in Kakamega, he just needs to follow the procedure.”

Okoth joined Nakuru at the age of 17 thus Nakuru not likely to let him go easily as they consider him ‘homegrown player’.

Kabras Sugar chairman Philip Jalang’o confirmed the matter is now at the Kenya Rugby Union. 

Nakuru lost Dalmus Chituyi and Geoffrey Ominde to Menengai Oilers on loan but acquired the services of Kelvin Kabole from Kabras, Teddy Amunga from Siaya RFC and Nakuru Kiti duo of John Theuri and Jackson Amunga.
