Olunga will be hopeful of game time this weekend in Guizhou’s fourth match of the season. The club is currently 11th on the log with two points.
Since Olunga joined the Chinese Super League there has been presence of mixed reactions among Kenyan football fans.
A good a number of fans have thrown their weight in the move arguing that Olunga made a wrong decision joining Guizhou Zhicheng side in China.

“I think I cannot decide my life on what other people think. When I made my move to China everyone counted me out but I believe now is the right time. I just keep on working hard and soon everyone will see,” said Olunga.
Olunga scored the only goal for Harambee Stars during their friendly match against Uganda Cranes at the Kenyatta Stadium.
