Moraa went into the race unbeaten so far this season and Kenyans had hope that she would deliver the third gold medal.
The win saw them end their three-year hiatus from the Kenya Cup after they were relegated at the close of the 2019/2020 season. As they make a comeback, the veteran tactician is hopeful of a good run this time around.
“Ours is very simple as we brace for our Kenya Cup return. To survive. We are already working behind the scenes to survive and we believe we will get there,” he said, as per Kenya Cup.
The tactician means business as he looks to return the lakeside team to winning ways. He is a two-time Kenya Cup winner, titles he bagged when still at Nakuru RFC in 2013 and 2014.
He also recounted the team’s championship campaign that saw them bag promotion back to the top flight. He added that they went into the championship with one goal and certainly achieved it.
