A strong Christian believer, Mwanzia has a knack of scoring crucial goals and bagged half of Coast Stima’s 42 goals from 26 appearances in 2016.”

While he acknowledges stiff competition for position in the team under a new environment, he hopes to overcome the challenge.  “It has been a challenge. Competition is very high, training exercise more intensive and requires to work harder.  I had to adapt fast to the new environment, new players and new club management.’’ 

Mathare United struggled to score in their KPL campaign last season netting a paltry 33 goals from 30 matches played and the celebrated towering striker could be a panacea to their goal drought.
