Kennedy Owino’s Transformation from Forgettable Gor Mahia Stint to Heroic Switch to AFC Leopards

Kennedy Owino’s football journey saw him leave his club after six months without playing any matches. His impressive performances at Posta Rangers earned him a hero status and led to his transfer to Leopards. Born in Kano, Kisumu County, Owino’s move to the record Kenyan champions was seen as a dream move. Having played for teams that had not won a league title before, Owino found hope in joining K’Ogalo, a team that had clinched seven titles in eight seasons.

However, life at Gor Mahia did not go as planned for Owino, as he struggled to secure playing time. Frustrated with the lack of opportunities, he decided to leave the club and joined Posta Rangers. His time at Posta Rangers saw him grow in confidence and stature, ultimately being entrusted with the captain’s armband. Owino’s standout performances attracted the attention of several clubs, and in January 2024, he joined AFC Leopards after a protracted battle over the transfer fee.

Owino expressed his desire for a new challenge and eventually secured a move to Leopards. Now at AFC Leopards, Owino aims to make an impact and help the club achieve its goals. Despite the challenges he faced at Gor Mahia, he sees his move to Leopards as an opportunity to continue his development and contribute to the team’s success.
