Leopards sign Obadiah Ndege



Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants AFC Leopards have bolstered their squad with the addition of former Tusker forward Obadiah Ndege.

The exciting striker has penned a two-year deal with Leopards, the club he played for in 2009 on their return to the top-flight.

According to Leopards’ vice-chairman,Walter Onyino, Ndege was signed on the recommendation of assistant coach Tom Olaba.

“We asked the coach [Olaba] to assess the player and he has proposed that we sign him. Just like the other players we have recruited, he will be with us for the next two years,” said Onyino.

After signing the deal, the former KRA striker was full of joy.

“I am very happy to rejoin my former club. It is a honour and my target is to win with them the TPL title,” said Ndege.

Ndege was among the 12 players released by the reigning KPL champions at the close of the 2012 season.

Other players who were dropped include: Dennis Mukaisi, Fred Ojwang, Charles Odette, Andrew Murunga, Allan Katerega, David Nyanzi, Patrick Kagogo [now at Sofapaka], Joseph Emeka [now at Muhoroni Youth], Isaac Otieno [now at SoNy Sugar] and Chrispine Olando [in talks with Gor Mahia].

Apart from Ndege, Leopards have also recruited Jackson Saleh [Western Stima], Martin Musalia [Mathare United], Dennis Wafula [Finlays Horticulture], Patillah Omoto [Kariobangi Sharks] and former Nakuru AllStars/Tusker defender Noah Abich.

The 12-time KPL winners are also closing in on Mathare’s skipper Antony Kimani.
