Kiongera finalizes Gor Mahia move



Highly-rated midfielder Paul Mungai Kiongera has joined Kenyan Premier League giants Gor Mahia from KCB.

Kiongera has penned a one-year contract with his new employers. Confirming the switch, Gor vice-chairman David Kiilo revealed the Kenya international rejected their initial offer of a two-year deal.

“We are very happy to have landed Kiongera’s signature. He is a player we have been chasing for a very long time. And the fact that he has been on other clubs’ wishlist makes us even happier,” said Kiilo.

“As far as I am concerned, that is the signing of the season and I acknowledge our scouting team for the job well done. They showed maturity and professionalism from the word go during the negotiations. Kiongera was targeted by other big clubs, but we managed to beat them. That shows how serious we are in the market.”

He added: “We wanted him to sign a two-year deal but he refused and opted for one year. But the good thing is that he is now our player and I am confident that he will play a vital role in our team next year.”

Gor, who will represent Kenya in next year’s Caf Confederation Cup, also recently signed defender David Owino from Western Stima.
