Kenya: KPL Sign Two Players From Talanta Side

Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) have signed Shela Mandela and Caleb Wafula, from the Communication Commission of Kenya sponsored side Talanta FC.

KCB coach Juma Abdalla said he had eight positions to fill following post season exit of some of his players among them Mungai Kiongera, Edwin Mwaura and EZekiel Odera.

The coach was particularly incensed by the departure of Mwaura, who he saw as an affront on the players rights to choose by Rangers who reclaimed him as he is employed by their sponsors.

"Why did it have to be only our payer who went back to Rangers. They have players in their employment who play for other teams but they are yet to go back. This is unfair," he lamented.

Abdalla raided Mathare United for the services of striker Edward Oduor, defender John Odhiambo and Kelvin 'Gazza' Omondi and midfielder Tirus Omondi. They also signed upstarts Raymond Mirungi and Jeff

Muhando. Meanwhile the bankers went down 3-2 against Talanta FC in a friendly encounter played at KCB grounds. I was using this friendly to try my charges, I am glad all the new signings got a chance to play. We will have a another friendly and from there, I will determine my first 11 for the league," said Abdalla

The bankers play University of Nairobi tomorrow
