Mieno linked up with coach Stewart Hall in Ethiopia after he signed a two year contract, a transfer move that re-united him with Harambee Stars keeper Patrick Matasi, who also turns out for the side.

However, coach Hall, who has handled Sofapaka and AFC Leopards in Kenya, was later fired owing to poor results.
