Karani Goes West after Failed Coast Stay

Former Chemelil Sugar striker, Meshack Karani, has ended his frustrating stay at Coastal side Bandari FC by signing for promoted Kakamega Homeboyz.

Karani, Chemelil’s top scorer last season with seven goals, has penned a one-year contract with the Western outfit who are bolstering the squad ahead of the second half of the season which starts in early July.

He joined Bandari at the end of last season with hopes of nailing a spot in the squad but instead found himself behind the likes of Edwin Lavatsa, Dan Sserunkuma and George Abege in the pecking order.

Second chance

The striker hopes he can revive his once glittering career that had him at some point linked with a move to record league champions Gor Mahia.

Homeboyz went into the mid-season break placed 7th with 20 points from 15 matches. Jeremiah Wanjala and Andrew Murunga are the club’s leading goalscorers with three goals apiece but the former left for Sony Sugar.

Karani becomes the club’s fifth transfer business after the acquisitions of Harambee Stars U20 defender Augustine Eshiwani who joined on loan from Posta Rangers, Hedmond Mauda from AFC Leopards, John Lomodei and Maurice Dukully from National Super League sides Nzoia Sugar and Palos FC respectively and Rayon Ashiono who has been promoted from the academy.
