Musila’s rugby journey began at Kakamega School, where he was appointed captain in 2011. While he didn’t secure the KSSSA 7s title during the Nationals held in Kakamega, he went on to lead the team to victory in the 15s format.
KCB will be keen to end their two-year wait for the Kenya Cup title, with their last coming in 2021.
