Midfielder Timonah Wanyonyi who left Gor Mahia in mid 2014, has confirmed that he will leave AFC Leopards and will be seeking a new club with a possible return to Gor Mahia.
“My possible destination is either Gor Mahia or Tusker.” he said to goal.com
He left Gor Mahia at the behest of his father, a staunch Ingwe fan.
“He (Wanyonyi) was under lot of pressure from his parents to join Leopards. Although our rivals haven’t contacted us, I believe they have sealed a deal (with the player) because he is moving on a free transfer,” said Chris Omondi who was the Gor Mahia secretary general at the time.
But his stay at AFC Leopards has been fraught with problems. It started on the wrong foot when INgwe bounced a cheque that was meant for Timonah
“It is true that a cheque for Sh200, 000 given to me by AFC Leopards’ bounced and my father was nearly arrested after he presented it to the bank.” he said at the time.
Whereas he impressed at Gor Mahia, even earning a spot in the senior national team, he has struggled at Ingwe, getting little playing time.
But Wanyonyi was a youngster at the time and has likely matured and learned in the intervening two years.
