KCB Bank is looking forward to a successful season for the women’s volleyball team after bolstering their ranks with four new top signings.
National team captain Mercy Moim became the latest acquisition for the bankers this week after putting pen to paper to a three-year deal. Moim, a former KCB player, will join middle blocker Edith Wisa who also joined the team from Kenya Prisons.
Other signings are Malkia Strikers opposite Sharon Chepchumba, formerly with Kenya Pipeline and Ugandan middle blocker Sharon Amito who crosses over from Ndejje University.
KCB Group Head of Corporate and Regulatory Affairs Judith Sidi said the bank is determined to build a professional outfit that will conquer Africa like in the golden era which ended in 2006 when they won their last Africa Club Championship title.
“We have been in consultations with the technical team and we are convinced that these four players will take the team to the next level. It’s a long term project that we believe will change the lives of these players and shape the future of Kenyan volleyball,” said Sidi who is KCB’s volleyball team patron.
The four new signings are expected to blend in with other regulars in the team like Noel Murambi, Leonida Kasaya, Jemimah Siang’u and Rwandese setter Ernestine Akimanizanye.
