Goal had earlier on reported about the impending switch to Mathare United and Okello finally linked up with Francis Kimanzi side just a few days after he left Tusker.
Interestingly, Posta Rangers had announced the acquisition of Okello, alongside forward Edwin Lavatsa and Paul Odhiambo, who reportedly signed a three-year-deal with the mailmen.
But Mathare announced on Monday the signing of Okello “from Tusker FC”. “Okello agreed to a one and a half year deal to become the second signing of the mid-season transfer window after Emmanuel Otieno,” said a statement obtained by Goal.
Okello brings a wealth of experience in Mathare United side that was left with only one goalkeeper, a youthful Otieno following the exit of Robert Mboya.
Mboya terminated his contract with Mathare United on Sunday to join Wycliffe Kasaya, who also left for greener pasture at Sofapaka.
