Stanbic Mwamba RFC proudly welcomes you to the 31st edition of the George Mwangi Kabeberi Memorial Sevens, the third leg of the Stanbic National Sevens Series and the first ever NSC sevens leg held in Machakos.
In the 30 years of its existence, the tournament has brought forth eleven different winners. Hosts, Stanbic Mwamba can brag of having the longest winning streak of four years. This was from 1988 to 1991. They then went on to miss out on the Kabeberi 7s title for eighteen years, a period in which teams like Barclays, Impala, Kenya Harlequins, Ulinzi, Stanchart, KCB, Nakuru and Kenya 7s grabbed an opportunity to hold the Kabeberi7s Champions bragging rights.
The hosts have lifted the George Mwangi Kabeberi7s title six times in its existence and if their current form is anything to go by, the 2018 edition might be their 7th title. They, together with the Kenya Harlequins have the same number of this tournament’s titles. Mwamba last won this title in 2015 as they lifted trophies from both divisions.
Resolution Impala Saracens have the highest #Kabeberi7s titles. They have lifted seven of the 30 titles the most recent one being 2017 when they beat Menengai Oilers 22-5 at the RFUEA Grounds.
