Mwamba Rugby Club announced on Wednesday several coaching staff changes.
The club has appointed Kevin Mwema Wambua to serve as head coach taking over from John Mbai. The club has also accepted Humphrey Kayange’s decision to be excused from coaching duties as he concentrates on his playing career.
The club’s Director of Rugby Manuel Okoth has relinquished the role but still remains actively involved in club’s off-pitch affairs. However, this role has not been filled yet.
James Okuku rejoins the club physiotherapist on interim basis taking over from Stella Mwende. Ms Mwende leaves the club after three years of wonderful and selfless service to pursue personal engagements.
Dr James Ondiege and Edwin Waita have been appointed Wambua’s assistants. Waita will also serve as team manager while Dr Ondiege, an established medical doctor, will also double up as team doctor.
Mr Wambua will also be free to appoint his backroom staff that will include coaches for the ladies and age grade teams.
Mr Wambua’s role will include but not limited to:
• Responsible for guiding the Mwamba Rugby Club through the 2016/2017 season – requiring the implementation of a season long campaign.
• To include; attack, defense, one on one skill development, player management, player selection.
• Detailed analysis and break down of key areas of the game – via live and video analysis.
• Off Field Management – timely interaction with Mwamba Rugby Club squad concerning roster selection on travelling weekends and adhering to time frame requirements for travelling roster submission.
• Player recruitment efforts for the Mwamba Rugby Club squad – interaction with colleges and clubs to build relationships for strong recruitment options.
• The head coach will work very closely with the team manager, Director of Rugby (TBC) and assistant coaching staff help collectively improve the Mwamba Rugby Club age grade Programme.
Wambua, a holder of Level Two coaching badge, has been the head coach for Daystar Falcons RFC taking the team to the brink of Kenya Cup qualification before losing to Impala III in the quarterfinals.
Wambua is a product of much acclaimed Mwamba RFC’s player development. He joined the club in 2002 while still in high school. He went on to become an important cog in Mwamba Rugby Club’s playing staff. He played for over 12 years for the club. He last played against Mean Machine in February this year.
He has won National Sevens Series , Enterprise Cup and Impala Floodlit with the club.
It is felt that these changes, although slight, will give the club a more structured set up with clearly defined responsibilities which will help the club to progress on the playing front.
The club would like to thank John Mbai, Manuel Okoth and Stella Mwende for their valuable contribution to the success of the club, and we hope they will return to an active role in the near future.
Our attention has been drawn to press reports that two of our players, namely Shaban Ahmed and Dan Sikuta, are on their way out. We would like to clarify that a number of clubs have sent inquiries about the duo’s availability. We’ve given them the conditions that they must fulfill before they are released by the club.
None of the clubs have gone past enquiry stage. Therefore, the duo are still contracted to Mwamba Rugby Club.
