Leopards begin to rebuild with key signings after nightmarish season

AFC Leopards is on the verge of signing three players in what should be the onset of a complete overhaul of the team’s playing unit.

Among the players whose signatures the club is chasing is Robinson Kamura who had an impressive season with Mathare United.

Also in the club’s radar are Western Stima midfielder Dennis Ikai and Posta Rangers defender Salim Shitu.

In a recent interview with Nairobi News, Kamura talked of his desire to seek a fresh challenge this season.


“I have been here (Mathare) for a long while and part of my heart is here. But for the sake of my career, its time I sought out another challenge to motivate me. That could be in the Kenyan league or elsewhere,” he said.

Reliable sources at Leopards have confirmed that a deal has been agreed verbally between the two parties, and the player will be putting pen to paper on a two year deal.

Leopards management have ordered for an almost complete overhaul during this close season, following a less than impressive campaign in 2016, where the team finished a lowly 13th on the Kenyan Premier League log.
