Mathare United have parted ways with keeper Mark Kioko after just one season at the club.
The 'Slum Boys' have confirmed that the keeper has left on mutual agreement. "The club has parted ways with custodian Mark Kioko on mutual consent.
"Kioko joined the team in January 2017 and he made two appearances in the past campaign. He leaves the club after one season and we wish him all the best in his career."
The decision to release Kioko comes just a day after the club signed Mike Simuyu from Gor Mahia. The ‘Slum Boys’ revealed on their official page that they had acquired the services of Simiyu from the Kenyan Premier League champions on a one and half year contract.
“We are delighted to announce the signing of Mike Simiyu on a one and a half year deal from Gor Mahia.
“The diminutive defender will provide options beyond Kenyan U-20 ace David "Messi" Owino at left back. He becomes the sixth player to join the club this transfer window after Job Ochieng’, Francis Omondi, Gilbert Osonga, Klinsmann Omulanga and Clifford Alwanga.”
