Ulinzi beef up attack with two deadline acquisitions

Ulinzi Stars made two signings as the mid-season transfer window came to a close on Monday 8 April, bringing in Moses Mwangi and Vincent Ochieng, two familiar faces to the military squad.

The two players were part of the Ulinzi Stars U20 side that claimed the 2016 KPL U20 title and are returning to the team after taking separate paths in their careers.


After the 2016 success, Mwangi left the side to link up with Sony Sugar and more recently Kariobangi Sharks while Ochieng stayed on to be enrolled fully into the military.

The two attacking players will be a big boost to the Benjamin Nyangweso led side who have struggled to orchestrate wins this season and have only managed five of the 20 games they have played in the league to lie in 12th place with 25 points.

Speaking on the two deadline Day signings, Nyangweso said, “Our attacking front needed some reinforcement and that is why we have brought in these two players. I believe we will be stronger with the two on board.

“Now the challenge is on them to show us what they can do. They have the chance and I wish them the best,” Nyangweso told the club’s official portal.

Four players

The two are part of four players who have been added to Ulinzi’s roster for the second half of the season with the others being Justin Kerongo and Oscar Wamalwa who have all been recalled from their military training.

The four time KPL champions parted ways with striker Elijah Mwanzia during the half season window.
