Brazilian Thiago Silva was on target in Gor Mahia’s 3-0 victory against Jericho AllStars in a friendly played on Wednesday

Meddie Kagere, the 2015 Gor Mahia fans darling and Brazilian Thiago Silva were instrumental for the club against lower league side Jericho AllStars in a friendly played on Wednesday.

Kagere delivered vital passes which could have widened Gor Mahia’s victory over the minnows while the Brazilian striker, who has been under assessment for a few weeks, registered his name on the score-sheet in the 70th minute after new signing Baron Jobita and lead striker Jaques Tuyisenge had scored the first two goals in the first half.

Jericho AllStars could have managed a consolation in the 75th minute but Jerim Onyango was keen on goal to easily pick Edd Kuria’s penalty-kick confirming the 3-0 victory for the Kenyan champions. K’Ogalo were using the match as a fitness test ahead of their Kenyan Premier League match against Thika United on Sunday (July 3).

Only time will tell if Meddie Kagere will be confirmed at Gor Mahia after the job was left to the club’s head coach Ze Maria to decide whether he rejoins the club or not. With barely three days to the transfer window closure, the club is also yet to officially confirm Thiago Silva’s fate after it was reported that he will not be signed.
