Mwamba have re-signed utility back Elvis Namusasi on another loan deal for the remainder of the season.
Scrummage has learnt that the player will make a return to Kulabu from Mombasa RFC for another stint. The playmaker was instrumental in Mwamba’s campaign last season, helping the city-based club secure a podium finish before being released to offer his services to Mombasa in the sevens circuit.
Namusasi previously with Western Bulls before making the switch to Mombasa played key role as Mombasa received Kenya cup promotion for the 2017/2018 season, topping it up with a call up to the Simbas squad under Ian Snook.
Mwamba makes the decision on the back of a series of injuries that have sidelined a majority of the half-backs. Charles Chege who started the season on a high suffered a setback against Kabras, effectively ruling him out of action.

First choice fly half and 2018/2019 breakthrough player Tony Omondi has a few weeks before he resumes training after suffering a foot injury and with seven games of the regular season left Kulabu felt the need to find a playmaker.
In the final matches of 2019, Michael Agevi had to be shifted from the centre of the field to play as the pivot. He has had impressive performances in the position.
Martin Oyugi who also had a stellar season in the 2018/2019 campaign is sidelined for an unknown period leaving long serving George Mutuku and Eugine Nzioka as the only available halfbacks.
Mwamba begin the year with a trip to Nakuru where they will be keen to avenge a 32-22 loss at the hands of Oilers at the end of the 2018/2019 regular season.
