Kabras to earn a walkover after Mwamba withdrawal


Kenya Cup side Mwamba have withdrawn from the Enterprise Cup quarterfinal meaning Kabras will earn a walkover.

According to Mwamba’s official portal, the side has decided to only field the second-string side in the Mwamba Cup Quarters.

Their senior side will not honour the Kakamega trip allowing Kabras who are the defending Champions to proceed to the semis without kicking a ball.

“Mwamba will send one team to Kakamega this weekend. We will, therefore, play Kabras in Mwamba Cup only. A decision has been made to miss this weekend’s EnterpriseCup,”  reads a statement by Mwamba’s official Twitter page.

The decision has been taken to allow the first team players who are hit with injuries have enough rest ahead of the Kenya Cup Quarterfinal clash against Impala set for Impala Club next week.

“This decision was reached on the advice of the club’s medical team as the first team is currently decimated by injuries. The doctors advised that the players will need extended rest and recovery in order to be fully fit for the rest of the #KenyaCup campaign,” the statement further read.

Kabras reached the quarters after beating Menengai Oilers 47-19 while Mwamba earned a walkover after their opponents Kisumu failed to turn up.

Other matches are set to go on as planned with Homeboyz scheduled to tackle their Jamhuri rivals Nondies in the second quarter at Jamhuri Grounds. Homeboyz eliminated Kenya Harlequins at RFUEA Grounds following a 39-13 win.

Impala are in the third quarterfinal and they will welcome Nakuru at Impala Club. Mitch Ocholla will be facing his former employers and they made to this stage after a  41-22 win over Championship side Mean Machine.

Nondies qualified for this round with kicking a ball after MMUST failed to honour the round of 16 clash.  A Thika Road derby will also be witnessed with 2017 winners KCB battling Kenyatta University’s Blak Blad.
