Madira Assassins CEO Nixon Muleri expects the quartet of Loice Wafula, Wendy Masiga, Josephine Odhiambo, and Nuru Hadima to bring on board the experience needed to compete in the Women’s Premier League.

Wafula and Masiga joined from Kaimosi Friends College, Odhiambo is from Migori Education Centre while Nuru Hadima played for Gaspo Ladies.

They are expected to step into the shoes of Jane Hato and Jeryl Odhiambo, who left for Mathare United, and Faith Atieno, who has been linked with Kenya Police Bullets.

Muleri said there was an urgent need to replace the trio, whose departure hurt the team’s stability.

“Wafula will step in to help in defence while Masiga, Hadima and Odhiambo will feature in midfield,” Muleri said.

“They bring with them the experience that has been lacking in the team as we enter the second leg.”

Coach Francis Muhame, who had cited inexperience as their major stumbling block, said: “They are going to boost our experience on the pitch. We hope to improve in terms of goal delivery.”

Meanwhile, Noel Shilachilo will remain with Bunyore Starlets, halting her move to Vihiga Queens.

“I just decided to turn down the offer at Vihiga Queens and finish my season with Bunyore Starlets,” said Shilachilo.

Noel was on her way to replace Janet Moraa, who left for Yanga Princess of Tanzania.
