“Goodbyes are never easy to say but the time has come for me to say it.


“After a successful and bitter-sweet two-and-a-half-year journey, my time at Gor Mahia has come to an end. It was not an easy decision to make but it has been necessitated wholly by the need to make ends meet and take care of my family.


“I wish to thank everyone who helped me in one way or another during my stay at the club. They include club Chairman Ambrose Rachier who signed me from Zoo Kericho plus coaches Hassan Oktay, Steve Polack and Vaz Pinto who have made me a better player.


“I also wish to appreciate my teammates who have supported and pushed me towards achieving my personal and team goals.  And to the fans who supported me in very many ways, asante sana and God bless you all.


“I leave this great club as a league champion, national team player and with an experience of playing in continental matches. I will always be a K’Ogalo diehard and hope to come back one day to contribute to this great club in any capacity.


“I wish the club all the best in its assignments.”
