Tito Okello’s Brace Lifts Gor Mahia Past Villa Oromchan, Western Stima

FKF Kenya Premier League

Monday, January 18
*Mathare United 2-0 Zoo
*Western Stima 1-3 Gor Mahia

Former KCCA and Vipers striker Tito Okello scored a brace as Gor Mahia managed to overcome Western Stima in the FKF Kenya Premier League.

Okello came off the bench with the game at 1-1 after Ugandan Villa Oromchan had equalised for Western Stima at Moi Stadium in Kisumu.

Samuel Onyango had put Vaz Pinto’s Gor in the lead.

Tito, playing for South Sudan after switching his allegiance from Uganda, had not scored for the Kenyan defending champions since his switch from Kitende.

He headed in from a Kenneth Muguna corner in the 66th minute to restore Gor lead.

The lanky forward, who replaced Bertrand Konfor at halftime, put the game far from Western Stima’s reach with a powerful strike in the far end.

The win lifts Gor Mahia to ninth place on the log with nine points from five games, with three games in hand.

Stima are still 16th with just five points.

Oromchan, formerly at Paidha Black Angles and BUL FC, joined Western Stima in June 2017.

He scored the equaliser last year in February against Gor Mahia before he was sent off in a 1-1 draw.
