Gor Mahia chasing Burundian hotshot Kavumbagu – VIDEO

Gor Mahia are on the trail of former Azam FC hotshot Didier Kavumbagu.

The Burundian international, considered one of the most prolific forwards in East Africa, is also said to be keen on a move to the Kenyan Premier League.

“I am excited about the possibility of playing in Kenya, especially after winning several trophies in Tanzania and Burundi. There has been contact from a couple of clubs over there and it flatters to be linked with K’Ogalo. I could help them retain the league title,” Kavumbagu told Nairobi News.

The 28 year-old commenced his soccer career at Atletico Olympic in his home country, and went on to make a name during a four year spell at Azam FC and Yanga in Tanzania, where he averaged a goal in every two games.


According to club insiders, Gor Mahia are looking at the lanky Kavumbagu as A replacement for Brazilian striker Thiago Lima Da Silva who is set to depart the club in December after an unsuccessful six month stint.

Startled after failing to win silverware this season, Gor coach Jose Marcelo “Ze Maria” is said to be keen on bolstering his squad, with Kavumbagu among the earmarked signings.

If all goes according to plan, Kavumbagu will play alongside Rwandan duo Meddie Kagere and Jacques Tuyisenge in attack next season, a striker force that will also include Timothy Otieno who is set to return after a season long loan spell at Posta Rangers.
