Ibrahim Kitawi, John Kiplagat and Duncan Owiti “macheda”, 3 players who were part of the youth brigade recruited by James Sianga, have been released by the club. In comes Itubu Imbem the former Tusker striker as Gor Mahia try to sharpen their attack which has been blunt. Imbem has signed a one year deal.
According to club officials, the trio have rarely made it into the squad of 18. It is therefore in their interest to be released. This writer thinks the three will flourish. Owiti in particular if given a run of first team matches to gain his confidence could end up being one of the top scorers in the league. he has in the past shown a knack for finding the back of the net.
Teenage sensation, Anthony Gathu who previously played for Mt Kenya University has shown signs of brilliance and earned praise from coach Bobby Ogolla.
