AFC Leopards on Monday announced the signing of John Oyiemba from Kariobangi Sharks on a two-year contract.
The Harambee Stars goalkeeper is set to make his debut for Ingwe in Tuesday’s exhibition match against Shabana FC at Gusii Stadium, Kisii.
The Jamhuri High School alumnus expressed his excitement in joining Leopards and was confident of helping the team achieve league glory this year. “I’m confident that the technical bench and my teammates will hit the winning formula and bring success to the club. I’m excited to join one of the best-supported clubs in the country with a fantastic fanbase,” he told AFC TV.
The 26-year-old shot-stopper joined Kariobangi Sharks in 2015 from Nairobi Stima, where he was plying his trade soon after completing his secondary school education at Nairobi’s Jamhuri High School. His heroics at Sharks saw him named Goalkeeper of the Year during the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya (SJAK) in 2017.
He was also part of the national team that took part in the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt.
