In rugby, Zetech had the last laugh after defeating Mount Kenya University (MKU) 13-12.

Meanwhile, Nakumatt FC officials say they are pleased with their new signings in the 2017 Kenyan Premier League season.

"The reception to the top tier has been good and we appreciate our fans for welcoming us in this manner. Our first game in Mombasa at the weekend was tough for sure and the climate really played a huge part in influencing the pace of the game," said Gateri, who is also the team captain.

Nakumatt FC coach said they need to be at their best this season.

"We must ensure that every talent in this team is utilised," said Nakumatt FC chairman Bernard Mosomi.
