Burundian duo joins Sofapaka as spending spree continues

Former league champions Sofapaka have bolstered their ranks with the addition of Burundian duo and a leap to West Africa for cover in the goalkeeping department.

With the midseason transfer window open, the team has shipped in five players; two of them locals. Togolese goalkeeper Abdoul Aigba who was part of the team at the recently concluded African Nations Championship (CHAN) is the biggest acquisition for the club.

He joins on a two-year contract from AS OTR FC of Togo, alongside Burundians Amisi Bizimana and David Nshimirimana. Bizimana, a midfielder, and Nshimirimana, a defender, have also signed two year deals, joining from Rukinzi FC and Buildcon FC respectively.

The trio joins the earlier confirmed Joe Waithira, from Wazito FC in the BetKing Premier League, and Timothy Otieno, who joins from Zambian side Napsa Stars.

The team had a torrid first half of the season, which saw a change in the coaching team, with head coach John Baraza leaving alongside a few members of the technical bench, as Ken Odhiambo stepped in.

Skipper Elli Asieche, on his second stint at the club, was also released earlier in the current transfer window, and has since found a new workplace at Wazito FC
