Ogweno, who joined K’Ogalo after his contract at Kariobangi Sharks expired, now says he joined the team to win trophies. “My dream was always to play in the Caf Champions League and also win trophies. Gor Mahia have established themselves as a big team in Kenya and East Africa.
“The team has ambitions to shine at the continental stage and so do I. They say if you don’t beat them, then you must join them. I want to help the team do even better this season."
Despite joining a team that has quality defenders in Charles Momanyi, Joash Onyango, Philemon Otieno and captain Harun Shakava, Ogweno is confident that he will earn playing time. “I joined the team knowing that they have good quality in the defence but that cannot stop me from fighting to start a match.”
On Monday, Gor Mahia unveiled new eight players during a ceremony held at a hotel in Nairobi. The eight are Erick Ombija a midfielder from Kenyatta University, young striker Erick Ogendo, who has been promoted from the youth team, after he played for Coast Stima in 2018.
