Last seasons’ Kenya Cup runners up Kabras Sugar RFC have confirmed three new additions to the squad ahead of the top tier league kick off on Saturday.

The sugar men have signed Steve Sakari Sikuta from Mwamba and utility back Vuyo Mbotho from South Africa.

Sakari is currently out with the Kenya Simbas on international duties while Mbotho is expected to join the Kabras backs lists ahead of this weekend’s kick off against Kenyatta University’s Blak Blad at Kakamega Showground.

Mbotho is expected to be part of the midfield department where he will fill the gap left by the injured  centre Bryceson Agesa.

Mbotho, 33, was roped in from Border Bulldogs, a rugby club playing in South African league Currie Cup. He has also featured for Griffons and SWD Eagles where he made over 150 appearances.

In the management department, Kabras have also roped in Carlos Katywa from South Africa in the forwards coaching role.

Katywa has worked with the side for the past few weeks in preparation for the new season replacing Dominique Habimana.

Habimama was handed the head coach role following the exit of Zimbabwean coach Mzingaye Nyathi and helped the side reach a Kenya Cup final but has since left the club.

Katywa has coached Border U/19 and U/20 teams, the University of Fort Hare before joining Varsity Shield side Rhodes where he has been serving as head coach since 2017. 

Meanwhile, Jerome Muller has been appointed the head coach of Kabras for the upcoming new season.

Muller who doubles as the backs coach will join hands with fellow countryman Katywa in steering the team forward.
