Ifedha will be joined by Edward Mwaura and Emmanuel Mulla.
Eric Miheso and Ibrahim Ayoo continue their partnership in the second row for the second game running.
Meanwhile, Sam Onsomu takes the starting slot at fly-half, with Andrew Odero also getting a nod in the backline.
Austin Sikutwa, Timothy Omela, and Davis Nyaundi make way for Johnstone Mung’au, Steve Arunga, and Eugene Lubanga.
