    Paul Kiongera

    The striker played for K'Ogalo in the 2013-14 season, on-loan from KCB and went on to score seven goals for the team, in which four were in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL). A year later, he made a return to his parent club.

    He shone for the Bankers in 2014, scoring five goals in the 11 matches played, a run which attracted Simba SC. He scored two goals in a friendly against Gor Mahia, but was unfortunate to get injured in his league debut for Simba. He went on to play nine games and managed two assists and was let go.

  2. Dan Sserunkuma

    The Ugandan joined Gor Mahia from Nairobi City Stars in 2012 and went on to play until 2014. He was the key man for K'Ogalo as he went on to score 49 goals in 73 appearances for the KPL side, and managed to win two league titles.

    Wekundu wa Msimbazi came for him in 2015 as they aimed at bolstering their squad. He scored six goals in the 12 appearances made for the team before terminating his contract on mutual consent when Armenian side Ulisses FC came calling.

  3. Meddie Kagere
    Simba SC.

    The striker was literally the heartbeat of K'Ogalo in the 2015-18 seasons; with him in the team, a win was the most probable outcome regardless of the opponent. It was for this reason, Simba went for him in mid-2018.

    He has since helped the team win two league titles, Community Shield and the FA Cup in his two full seasons. In the same period, the Rwandan has scored 45 league goals and will be once again the main man in the new campaign.

  4. Francis Kahata
    Goal Kenya.

    The Kenya international joined Gor Mahia in 2015 from Albanian side FK Tirana. In just a few months, he had established himself as a key player for the Kenyan side. During this period, he helped the team win four league titles including reaching Caf Confederation Cup quarter-finals.

    The Tanzanian giants came for him at the start of the 2019/20 season. In this period, he has already managed to win three titles with the team; getting six goals and as many assists in the process.

  5. Joash Onyango

    Joash Onyango

    The 'Berlin Wall' is the latest player to leave K'Ogalo for Wekundu wa Msimbazi. The 27-year-old joined Gor Mahia from Western Stima in 2017 and took no time to settle. His exploits made the KPL side dominant in domestic competitions.

    He played a starring role as Gor Mahia reached the quarter-final in the 2018/19 season. Simba have gone for his services to stabilize at the back and compete in the continent. The Kenya international is seen as the man who can help them achieve that.
