Kenyan keeper unmoved by fans’ criticism

Harambee Stars custodian Boniface Oluoch says he is not bothered by criticism of his recent performances on social media.

The Gor Mahia goalkeeper has in the last week been the subject of discussion on Facebook and Twitter in the wake of what he himself has conceded to be a “shaky” performance an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Republic of Congo last weekend.

But the former Tusker FC keeper says he doesn’t even consume social media.


“I had a shaky game against Congo, and that was partially because there were some issues with the defence during that match,” Oluoch said.

“However, am not bothered by what people say on social media, I don’t even read those comments.

“Sometimes my friends call me and say so and so is saying this about you but I ignore it. I even have a kabambe (cheap) phone that cannot access the internet,” Oluoch added.

The veteran custodian will compete against Wycliffe Kasaya for the starting position when Kenya plays Ethiopia in the Africa Nations Championship (Chan) qualifier on Sunday.
