Nairobi City Stars might be one of the new teams in the Kenyan Premier League but that feat wasn’t achieved easily.
The team had been relegated to the National Super League (NSL) the end of the 2016 season. After 12 years in the Kenyan top flight and there were players who played a key role in their return to KPL.
The club has now released the roster of the players who scored most goals during their time in Kenya’s second football tier with Davis Agesa Amuyunzu topping this chart.

In their first season in the NSL, in 2017, Agesa scored seven goals that included the only NSL hat trick by City Stars registered during a 4-1 blitzkrieg of FC Talanta at Camp Toyoyo in September.
He added one more the next season before departing for a stint in Asia. Upon his return months later he added three goals in the shortened and transitional 2018/19 season and another six that helped the team gain promotion in the Corona-disrupted 2019/20 season to tally up his NSL strikes to 17.
The 17 goals put him above the duo of Gambian Ebrima Sanneh and Ugandan Sande Katumba who both scored 15 goals over two NSL seasons.
Ezekiel Odera and Peter Mwangi Wainaina are the next best NSL scorers for City Stars with 14 and 10 goals, respectively.
