With the departure of Meddie Kagere to Simba SC, the weight of Gor Mahia will squarely rest on the back of Kagere's former striking partner, Jacques Tuyisenge.
The Rwandan star is now the point man in K’Ogalo’s forward-line, even as fans continue to hope that new signing, Burundian forward Francis Mustapha, will be a perfect replacement.
Mustapha replaced Kagere after penning a deal with the reigning Kenyan Premier League champions on Friday.
But while Gor Mahia fans are still debating whether the club made an informed decision to let Kagere go, sad still, as a free transfer, Tuyisenge’s form could help dry the tears on the faces of the ever loyal Green Army with some shreds of hope clearly visible on the horizon, albeit from a far.
Tuyisenge inscribed his name on Gor Mahia's history books with his 10th goal of the season when he became the first player from the club to score in four consecutive games since 2015 when Girona striker Michael Olunga achieved the fete.
The free-scoring striker helped K’Ogalo open a 15 point lead following Gor Mahia’s victory over Sony Sugar in Kisumu on Friday.
The goal took Tuyisenge’s tally this campaign to ten; that, in itself, another record as he became the first player for Gor Mahia to hit a double-figure in three consecutive seasons.
Tuyisenge joined the elite club that has the likes of Hesbon Omollo, who last set the record between 1983 and 1986.
Gor Mahia, who will take a week off the domestic competition to honour Cecafa Kagame Cup, are top of the table with 49 points.
