  1. Now with these three players going to uganda, are we still playing mathare utd on wednesday? we need to win this match and we have to be at full strength.

  2. Kevin “Veron” Omondi has had a dream start in his first season…Good for him and the country too. Nowdays, its a common scenario for young stars to break into the Stars squad.

  3. Congrats boys. Go and prove yourselves in Tanzania before the Ivory Coast trip. For now somebody please lets know if the Mathare game is on tomorrow.And with the coming U 20 CECAFA competition in Eritrea it appears that the club may not be active on the local scene for a longer time.Yet national duty comes first.Just do it for the country is yours.

  4. If 3 Player are on there way to Eritria and other 3 to Tanzania and we have a game on the same 11th, then why could they put the match on the weekend, to me its not fare since we didnt play in the wkend where some of the player were around.

  5. K’ogalo proved that it’s the best team this season,they are in good form and as always Gor Mahi Pinje duto ywakni.
    Long live K’ogalo and Zico you are doing a great job,we are behind you!
