Their contribution led to a 3-0 advantage, and eventually a 3-2 win over Leopards in Kasarani.
Kapen and Mzee become the fourth and fifth Simba wa Nairobi players to make it to the team of the week.
Rowland Makati and Kelvin Etemesi started it all in matchday four and five against Nzoia Sugar, and Sofapaka in match days four and five, respectively.
“It is very encouraging to see our players constantly being featured in the team of the week. It goes to show that with extra work and smartness, any player making a positive contribution from the roles they have been given will get recognized,”
“It works well for the team as such recognition spurs the rest of the lot to step up.” said head coach Nicholas Muyoti
