Samuel Onyango joins Kenya Police FC, aiming to bolster their attack following his successful tenure with Gor Mahia and a stint in Zambia.

Former Gor Mahia winger Samuel Onyango has joined the ranks of Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL) moneybags Kenya Police FC.

The 29-year-old, known for his agility and sharpness on the field, was a free agent after mutually parting ways with Zambia top-flight side Kabwe Warriors.

Rumors had swirled about a potential return to Gor Mahia, especially after Onyango's meeting with Eliud Owalo, the Cabinet Secretary for the Ministry of Information, Communication and the Digital Economy, and an ardent supporter of K'Ogalo.

However, in a turn of events, he has chosen to don the Kenya Police FC colors, adding to the club's growing list of impressive signings.

"There's a new Sheriff in town, Samuel Onyango. A beef up on our striking force. Karibu nyumbani (Welcome home) Daddy," the club said in a statement.

Samuel Onyango is not the first high-profile signing for Kenya Police FC this season.

The club had previously strengthened its squad by acquiring the services of Duncan Otieno, a former midfield maestro for AFC Leopards.

This strategic recruitment drive underscores the club's commitment to strengthening its weak departments and making the team capable of challenging for titles.

Onyango, who joined Gor Mahia in November 2017 from Ulinzi Stars, had an illustrious career with the team, being the first signing under the guidance of English tactician Dylan Kerr.

During his tenure at K'Ogalo, he was instrumental in securing three consecutive Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL) titles for the seasons 2017/18, 2018/19, and 2019/20, etching his name in the annals of Kenyan football.

His tenure at Kabwe Warriors concluded with his last game on December 9,2023 against Mutondo Stars.

The Zambian club also served as a temporary home for other Kenyan talents like Harrison Mwendwa, a former Kariobangi Sharks forward, and Ugandan midfielder Hashim Sempala, Onyango's ex-teammate at Gor Mahia.
