Shaban Ahmed starts for Mwamba when they play away to Top Fry Nakuru  in a Kenya Cup match day nine fixture at the  Nakuru Athletic Club on Saturday 24 January 2015.

Ahmed, who came on as a second half substitute during last weekend’s 28-15 loss to KCB, famously masterminded last season’s 30-20 win over the Wanyore and will certainly be fired up to once more play a starring role.

Chris Asego, the starting fly half in recent games is moved to inside center in light of Brad Owako’s continued injury enforced absence , partnering Greg Odhiambo in midfield.

There are also wholesome changes to Kulabu’s back three where Collins Injera who has started all of Mwamba’s eight previous outings at flank starts from the wing. 

Dennis Ombachi also moves to the wing with Peter Kepher starting ahead of Steve Okeyo at full back.

Taking up Injera’s position at flank is Ben Sikuta while Dan Sikuta returns from injury to partner Nick Ongeri at lock.
