Nakumatt FC striker Boniface Mukhekhe is the KPL Player of the Month of May.

Mukhekhe, who scored three goals in the month, including a brace in a 2-0 victory against Posta Rangers, became the first player from the club to win the award.

“It is humbling, almost shocking to win this award. I had only seen people win it. I never envisaged it coming my way.

“All I did was give my best but not once did I think I would win it. I now believe all things are possible with hard work. We have managed to turn around our performance because a sponsor has given us some help and conditions are better than when we started the season. It was terrible then but we want to even get better as a team."

Mukhekhe's impressive show that month also saw him provide three assists, for the side that was struggling at the basement of the table, a display that helped them move to 12th on the log.
