He said: “I want to thank God I arrived in Kenya safely, and my main aim in here is to work well with my teammates and to make sure Gor Mahia win the league and leaves a good mark in the continental matches.”

"I know Gor Mahia is a big team and when I came here, I knew well where I was heading. I know there will be competition to play but I will work hard and I believe everything will be okay.’’
