KCB, who finished 5th in the previous season will be looking to turn its fortunes around this season with the recent recruits and the new technical bench under the tutelage of coach Mwalala.

Derrick Otanga said:

“I am very happy to be back home after my short stint at Police. This is a place I know very well and even though I have not worked under coach Mwalala before, he has been instrumental in enabling us to settle in with the rest of the squad. There is of course enormous pressure for me to bag the goals and hopefully help KCB lift this season’s title.”

Otanga, a proven local talent who was the top scorer of the 2021/22 FKF-premier League season will be keen on propelling KCB FC to its maiden Kenya Premier League title.
