He has been branded as one of the best Goalkeepers Kenya has ever produced alongside Mahmoud Abbas aka Kenya One.

He played his first game in Zanzibar Tanzania in the East African Challenge at the age of 23 before joining the national team at the African Cup of Nations tournament in 1972 which was held in Cameroon.

Mahmoud was privileged to visit many countries including Germany where he stayed for one and half months while playing against different teams.
