His former player and current Kisii RFC head coach Eric Bosire tipped Mbai to do justice to the position he’s been appointed at KRLF.

It’s an honour and privilege to get the opportunity to be part of the this exciting Journey of building something new that has great potential and working with colleagues with rich rugby pedigree,’ ’said Mbai.
