Waruru teed-up Umaru Kasumba with just seconds into stoppage time to help the Ugandan end his goal drought
Stephen Waruru has tipped Ulinzi Stars to rise from the ruins of defeats and draws that they have endured this season.

It is Waruru, who provided an assist that ended Ulinzi Stars' impressive away record, but the former Kenyan Defence Forces officer believes that the undying spirit of a Soldier will help Ulinzi Stars get back to their feet.

“I think Ulinzi Stars played well only that luck was not on their side. That’s football and a soldier lives to fight another day,” said Waruru.

Waruru, who dropped the combat for civilian life at Sofapaka in January, admitted that meeting his former colleague came with a lot of emotions.

“Facing my former teammates brought sentiments but in as much as I respect Ulinzi for helping me to navigate through the cut-throat battle of big-time football, I had to get the job done for Sofapaka where I’m currently attached,” Waruru told Sofapaka website.

The battle at Narok County Stadium was like facing a blood brother in a battle zone for Waruru but that didn’t stop him from giving his best when he provided the killer pass that was slotted home by Ugandan export, Umaru Kasumba.

Ulinzi Stars are fifth on the log with 38 points as they prepare to take on a resurgent Sony Sugar.
