Faheem Juma

The Kenya Moran guard/forward has taken his talents to Equity Bank. A smart move from the bankers. This signing will add depth and size to Equity’s offense. Faheem is a great shooter, and at 6’7 he can rebound and block shots too. This young fellow can easily be Equity bank’s franchise player and the bankers can build a championship team around him.

Veteran guard with great basketball IQ, Shem is a great shooter and also adds that experience and leadership on the Equity Roster. He leaves Thunder together with Faheem and takes his talents to the banker’s side.

Fidel Muga

A great on-ball defender with a decent shot. Fidel also leaves Thunder and has taken his talents to Mombasa city to join Kenya Ports Authority. His addition will add value to KPA’s defense which was a little shaky last season.

Nick Ogolla Gogol

Umoja’s big Gogol has made his move. After his long time service to Umoja basketball, Gogol is headed to Mombasa city’s Kenya Ports Authority. His post presence will add value to KPA’s offense and defense too given his length and size.

Phelix Luke

Returning from injury, the former equity big will suit up for EMYBA, a team that had a great run in the previous season. Luke will give them good paint presence. He is a good rebounder and also aggressive on offense. His addiction to EMYBA is a plus.

Fred Odhiambo

Fresh from USIU tigers, Freddy is headed to Equity bank. The former Tigers guard adds depth to the bankers’ bench making Equity the biggest gainers this off-season. The bankers are obviously the best team on paper.

Ongoro Joseph

The former Strathmore Blades shooter has joined Equity Bank. It will be interesting to see how he will fit in, his addition adds more depth and scoring power to the bankers.

Rita Aluoch left the Hawks and signed with KPA. That’s a win for KPA, with her length she adds the size advantage KPA was lacking last season. The combination with Vilma Achieng will be interesting to watch. Ritah is a good shot blocker and a solid rebounder.

Other transfers that happened on the low low were: Celia Okumu from Tangit Sparks who joined forces with her twin sister Selina Okumu in KPA, Carol Akinyi from Kisumu Lady Bucks who also joined the coastal side, KPA.

By the look of things Equity bank and KPA made the most moves and we will be watching to see who between these big wigs will start their season on a high.
