Burundian hitman calls time on Gor Mahia stint

Just over a year after being shipped in at Gor Mahia, Burundian forward Francis Ndjali Mustafa has left the club after a mutual agreement between the two parties as confirmed by the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants.

Mustafa was signed at the end of June 2018, as a replacement for Rwandan Meddie Kagere who had just left for Tanzania giants Simba SC. Well, he struggled to match the high standards set by Kagere, now a crowd favorite at the Tanzanian champions.

Busy off-season

On Friday 2 August, the club, which has had a busy off-season so far, communicated that the forward, who was part of Burundi’s first ever African Cup of Nations (AFCON) appearance, has been released.

“Burundian Francis Mustafa parts ways with Gor Mahia on a mutual agreement. We thank you for your time at the club and contribution towards success at all levels,” the club notes on Twitter.

Under scrutiny

Mustafa’s future at Gor Mahia came under scrutiny after the club announced the signing of two west African forwards; Ivorian Gislein Yikpe Gnamian and Ghanaian Francis Afriyie.

The Burundian forward scored three goals in Gor Mahia’s title winning campaign last season.
