Last season, Jacque Tuyisenge was the bright spot in a Gor Mahia squad that was struggling to catch its footing at the beginning of the season. Yet last season, Tuyisenge was battling back from an injury. This season Tuyisenge is healthy and raring to go. He has already scored two goals and is determined to shake the net several more times this season.

“I am delighted because when you are a striker and you get goals you are always happy because that is your job. So I feel good to have scored in our first match. I cannot say that I will score a certain number of goals this season because I am not God, only God knows tomorrow so I will keep on working hard and hunt for goals. The number of goals He will give me I will appreciate”, Tuyisenge told Futaa.com

His compatriot, Kenneth Mugiraneza “Migi” also played a solid game and scored last Sunday. He thinks the team has the quality to go places this season

““I look at the kind of team we have and I am very confident we can challenge for the title. There are quality players in the team and everyone has that motivation to win. I believe, looking at how we played in the first match, we can do it,” he said to supersport.

Prior to arriving in Kenya, Migi who previously played for Azam of Tanzania, had done his homework on local football and was thus well prepared.

“They have told me all about the Kenyan league; what to expect, which teams to look out for and how best to tackle and prepare the games. They have made it easier for me. I have played two competitive matches so far and I have also looked at many matches before. The difference is that in Kenya no team is small. Anyone is capable of winning. It is not like in Tanzania when you know with some teams you can win by six or seven goals. Here it is tougher” he continued.

Discipline and focus is what has enabled the Amavubi skipper to achieve what he has achieved so far and he plans to continue down that path.

“I usually do my individual training before the team training but I plan to put in even more effort this year so that we can become champions once more. “Here at Gor the coach is good, and the players are also very good. The management is committed to facilitate good performance from the team so I am sure we can achieve that dream,” said Migi to the KPL website.

Defender Wellington Ochieng was in the starting line-up last weekend. In 2016, he found playing time difficult to come by after joining from Muhoroni Youth. He is determined to solidify his place in the starting line up now that Marcelo has left. Ochieng credits Gor Mahia’s play to the technical bench trio of Ze Maria, Marco Aurellio and Zedekiah Otieno

““To have such a trio at your disposal is a fantastic thing. If we heed to their instructions and work hard, then am sure this combination will bring the best out of us. Probably we could even end up making history as one of the most successful crop of players to have donned the Gor Mahia jersey,” said Wellington to Citizen sports.

Muhoroni Youth defender Wellington Ochieng, becomes Gor Mahia’s second signing of the 2016 mid season transfer season. Ochieng will slot in at right full back where he will compete for playing time with Burundian cross-master Karim Nizigiyimana. This concludes negotiations between Kogalo and Muhoroni Youth.

Ochieng noted that he was elated at joining the club and hopes to be productive.

“I have officially penned down a two-year contract at Gor Mahia. I am happy for making this move and hopeful of a productive stay,” Ochieng’ told goal.com

Ochieng has been a solid defender who is also productive when going forward. He has scored numerous goals for Muhoroni Youth.

Ochieng however is not eligible to play in this weekend’s KPL TOp 8 match against Tusker. This according to KPL president Jack Oguda

“The tournament rules are clear that a player cannot feature for two teams in the same year. So even if Wellington is registered in time, he will still be ineligible having played for Muhoroni Youth in the previous stage of the tournament,” Oguda said to Supersport.

Ochieng is Gor Mahia ‘s second signing following Baron Oketch who joined from Chemelil Sugar.

A large gap will be left by the departure of Khalid Aucho who has been a real engine in the Kogalo midfield.  Gor Mahia will be hard placed to find a midfield dyanamo of Aucho’s calibre.

Kahata in a previous match

National team coach Stanley Okumbi is thoroughly impressed with Gor Mahia midfield ace Francis Kahata. In Okumbi’s mind, Kahata was the engine of the team on Sunday driving forward and creating numerous chances.
“Kahata played so well created many chances and I am happy with him.” said Okumbi to futaa.com

Indeed Kahata likely registered more passes than anyone unlike the other members of the midfield who were less impressive. Johannah and Timbe scored but they have been accused of playing very selfishly as was Paul Were. Two of these players are transfer targets of Gor Mahia. The price tag that Bob Munro has put on Johannah is said to be Ksh 10 million. It must be said that Johannah’s lob over the advancing Congo goalkeeper was impressive.

Okumbi did not field Kahata in his first two matches against Guinea Bissau and must be regretting it.

Ninteen year old Eric Ouma, earned his first cap and passed the test with flying colours. He was solid in defence, not allowing anything through. None other skipper Victor Wanyama was impressed.
He had a good game and showed maturity despite his age said Wanyama to capital FM

Kogalo officials are in the midst of trying to convince Marcelo to sign a two year deal.

Rwanda striker Jacque Tuyisenge carried over his goal-scoring form to the international arena. He scored twice but was unable to prevent Rwanda from losing 3-2. Abouba Sibomana also played 90 minutes in that match.

Khalid Aucho was the hero of the day for Uganda. he scored the winning goal that enabled Uganda to beat Botwana 2-1 away from home. Geoffrey Walusimbi was a second half substitute.

Meanwhile Muhoroni Youth defender Wellington Ochieng, who is being pursued by Kogalo has himself expressed interest in joining the club.

“According to the information I received from the chairman (Adagala), all is going on well and I am sure that Gor Mahia will be my club in second leg. 70% of the deal is basically done because the two clubs are slowly agreeing on the transfer cash,” Ochieng’ told goal.com
Gor Mahia have offered Ksh 500,000 as transfer fee while Muhoroni Youth want Ksh 2 million. The two clubs have to meet in the middle
