Kabras Rugby Football Club has unveiled an away kit ahead of the new Kenya Cup season scheduled to start on February 27, 2021.

The team that is sponsored by West Kenya Sugar Company unveiled the new uniform at the Kakamega Show-Ground on Thursday.

The new look kit resonates well with the company’s sugar brand. The high quality of the game is very much in line with company’s high quality products.

The launch came just one day before Kabras RFC lock horns with Kenya Harlequins on Saturday at the Nyayo National Stadium for Sisimua Charity Cup.

The players exuded confidence that they were going for nothing but a win against Kenya Harlequins in a mouth-watering match slated for Saturday.

The captain of Kabras Dan Sikuta hailed West Kenya Sugar Company for sticking with players during the Coronavirus pandemic.

According to Mr Sikuta, the sponsor ensured they received monthly stipend to keep them afloat against the effects of the infectious Coronavirus.

The players were also tested regularly against the virus, supplied with face masks, sanitizers thanks to the sponsor.

“We are thankful for our sponsor West Kenya Sugar Company for keeping together and always ensured that every end of the month we had something in our accounts,” said Sikuta.

Head Coach Mzingaye Nyathi said his team was more than ready for the season as they have had enough time to train.

“Players are well prepared and we are looking forward to a new season with some excitement since we have adequately trained. The sponsor ensured the players remained safe and healthy during Covid-19 pandemic,” said Mr Nyathi.

West Kenya Sugar Company has remained steadfast in sponsoring and promoting sports in Kenya as demonstrated through the assistance it gives to the (KRFC) Kabras Rugby Football Club over for years.

The team prides of amazing indoor and outdoor training facilities situated at the Show-Ground.

West Kenya has offered educational scholarships to some 30 players to enable them pursue various courses in higher learning institutions.

Those who complete their course are absorbed as employees at the West Kenya, Edwin Achayo who is one of the coaches of the Kabras and Nick Barasa are among those employed at the moment.

The sponsor has launched an auspicious programme dubbed “ Cheza Na Eka” aimed at inducting Kabras rugby players into sugarcane farming.

The company provides a player with financial support to enable him start farming of the sugarcane and supply them also with some farm input.

So, at least 10 players have already been inducted into the programme and are acting as trailblazers for those that will follow.

The players have engaged in various company’s CSR activities one such being the distribution of food stuff to the victims of flash floods in Ahero, Kisumu county last year.

As the new season commences, the team’s morale is high and the sponsor is confident that their investment is well expended.
