Oilers rope in Nakuru & Impala play-makers


Menengai Oilers have acquired the services of Nakuru RFC halfback Geoffrey Ominde and Impala Saracens fly-half Mark Kwemoi.

Oilers tactician Gibson Weru has confirmed the development to the Scrummage, stating that they will bring in experience and leadership which has been lacking in the team.

” We acquired the services of Ominde (Geoff) and Kwemoi (Mark) in the just-concluded transfer window. I think they bring in leadership and a lot of experience. That is an area we really lack, we have good backs and forwards but at times we struggle in terms of decision making. I believe they will give us the edge,”  Gibu told Scrummage.

The arrival of the duo is a big boost for Oilers who are hoping to make it to the Kenya Cup playoffs for the first time in their second season in the top tier.
