The 26 year-old emerged the best after scoring four goals including a brace against Mathare United and point winning efforts in stalemates against Tusker and Western Stima.

He beat Posta Rangers goal keeper Patrick Matasi by a single vote in a stiff competition which also had AFC Leopards striker Gilbert Fiamenyo and Rangers defender Joakins Atudo.

"I came back to the league in April and did very well. I'm impressed by that performance and hope to keep scoring. Four goals in April alone and now eight in total. Hopefully I will contest for golden boot come end of the season. I have targets which currently are personal but I'm working towards them,” he said.

As a result, he pockets Sh100000 and a 49-inch television set from South Korean manufacturing conglomerate LG Electronics as his team (Ulinzi Stars) take home Sh50000 as part of the package.
