Wazito FC defender Kevin ‘Chumsy’ Okumu has rejoined Nairobi City Stars on loan until the end of the season, Simba wa Nairobi have confirmed.
Chumsy joined Wazito at the start of the season but has struggled to get playtime with Coach Francis Kimanzi preferring Dennis Sikhayi in that position. Okumu started the season opener against Kariobangi Sharks but has not featured again for the team.
In search of playtime, he has returned home and the club has announced his arrival through a statement on their website.
“Right back Kevin Chumsy Okumu is back at Nairobi City Stars, albeit on loan from Wazito FC, for the rest of the season. Chumsy served City Stars for four years but left mid last year at the expiry of his contract. Return of the versatile Chumsy to Simba wa Nairobi is a big boost to the backline especially the right channel that lacked a natural fit,” read part of the statement from the club.
Team coordinator Samson Otieno challenged the marauding right-back to reclaim his place in the team
“The beauty of his return is that he rejoins a setup that understands him well as he will find the same band of coaches and players he left behind when he left. He is most welcome home and now it is upon him to reclaim his old position in the team.” he said.
He becomes the team’s second mid-season signing. The Kawangware based side already signed left-back Bolton Omwenga who was club-less after terminating his contract with Biashara United of Tanzania.
