Harambee Stars midfielder and former Gor Mahia captain Kenneth Muguna has signed a two-year deal with Tanzania’s Azam FC.
Muguna’s contract with Gor Mahia was set to expire in October. Talks to extend his stay didn’t bear fruit.
“Azam are delighted to confirm the signing of Kenya international winger Kenneth Muguna on a two-year contract and he is arriving from Gor Mahia. Muguna is coming to add more punch in the team’s squad and especially the midfield area and the deal will see him stay at Chamazi until 2023,” the Dar es Salaam-based club announced in a statement.
“The attacking midfielder is one of the biggest stars in Kenyan football, having this season been named the country’s FA Cup Player of the Year, which ended with his Gor Mahia team emerging champions of the tournament”.
The announcement comes just a day after the 25-year-old confirmed that he was leaving K’Ogalo to take up a new challenge in his career.
Muguna joined Gor from Western Stima in 2017, but left at the end of the season for FK Tirana of Albania. He returned to Gor Mahia in 2018, and the same year, he was handed the captaincy, a position he held until early this year, when he was banned after Caf found him guilty of unsporting behaviour.
Muguna becomes Azam’s fourth signing after the arrival of two Zambian stars, Charles Zulu, and Rodgers Kola and left-back Edward Manyama.
Muguna will now link up with fellow Kenyan internationals plying their trade in the Tanzanian top flight, Farouk Shikhalo, who is at Yanga SC, and Simba SC defender Joash Onyango.
