SOFAPAKA SIGN WYCLIFFE KASAYA AND PISTONE MUTAMBA
Sofapaka have completed a double deal for Wazito FC striker Pistone Mutamba and goalkeeper Wycliffe Kasaya.
Batoto Ba Mungu have lured Mutamba from the newly promoted side Wazito with a two-year deal while Kasaya signed a one-year contract from Mathare United.
Sofapaka, who had set their eyes on winning their first KPL title since 2009, are still in the market for two more players.
“Kasaya will act as a cover for Mathias Kigonya but we are still looking for a defender and a midfielder,” coach John Baraza told Goal.
Sofapaka are currently joint second on the log with 28 points, same as Ulinzi Stars, who enjoy a superior goal difference.

SOFAPAKA DEFENDER SIGNS FOR VIHIGA UNITED
Sofapaka defender Vitalis Akumu has signed for Vihiga United after leaving the club.
Akumu, who has never started any match for Sofapaka since joining the team, has been below Moussa Omar, Rodgers Aloro, Willis Ouma, Yusuf Mohammed, Humphrey Okoti and Kevin Oduor in the pecking order, hence limited chances of a starting place.
“Akumu requested if he could leave the team to join Vihiga United where he can get more playing time and we granted him his wish. So that means I will be going for a defender to replace him when the transfer window opens,” Sofapaka coach John Baraza told Goal on Wednesday.
AFC LEOPARDS LEAD RACE TO SIGN ELVIS RUPIA
Rupia, who has emerged as one of the most sought after strikers in Kenya this season, is currently on the radar of Ingwe.
Though Rupia played down the talks on Tuesday when he confirmed that his future is at Nzoia Sugar, Goal understands that the free-scoring striker could move if a reasonable offer is tabled.
Ingwe Patron Johnson Sakaja is said to have held talks with the striker, who has scored 12 league goals so far this season.
“We met with the player and his representatives last night. We are trying to strike a deal with him but nothing has been confirmed yet. I have told the NEC to find the best players because there is money to bring quality players,” Sakaja told Goal.
