Gor striker joins Zambian club, while Muchiri begins his Ulinzi journey.

After completing his six-month military training at the Recruit Training School in Eldoret, Kenya international Boniface Muchiri has joined Ulinzi Stars FC.

The four-time Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKF-PL) champions announced the news on social media on Friday, as well as welcoming back striker Hillary Simiyu, who had taken a break to undergo military training.

Muchiri, a quick-footed winger, left Tusker in December, citing the need to plan for life after football as the reason for his departure.

He will continue to serve in the Kenya Defence Forces after he retires from football.

"Football is a short career, and some of us are responsible for caring for our parents and siblings at home." This necessitates careful planning, and if KDF comes to you and promises you a job if you play for them, it is an offer you cannot refuse. There are numerous advantages to going there, so it is a decision I did not hesitate to make," he said.

Muchiri, 25, worked at Tusker for five years.

Along with Simiyu, he is expected to play an important role in Ulinzi's campaign in the 2022/23 FKF-PL, which is set to begin on August 27.

Last season, the soldiers finished 13th with 40 points, scoring only 19 goals in 31 games.

Ulinzi has changed its management in order to improve its performance next season, with Vincent 'Moriero' Otieno taking over as coach from Benjamin Nyangweso.

Former player Mohamed 'Dalo' Khamis has been named as the team's new assistant coach, succeeding Stephen Ochola.

Ulimwengu leaves
Green Eagles of Zambia have signed Burundian international striker Jules Ulimwengu from Gor Mahia.

"Gor has been my home," the Burundian forward said in an interview. "I thank the leadership and my teammates for the support I received while in Kenya." "I'm excited to take on a new challenge with the Zambians," he said.

Ulimwengu chose not to renew his contract with the record Kenyan champions, which expired last month.

Meanwhile, KCB has announced the signings of Harambee Stars midfielder Danson Chetambe and Harambee Stars striker Francis Kairo.

Chetambe, who was previously with Bandari, joined the bankers on a one-year contract, as did Kairo, who was previously with FC Talanta.

Kenyan International right-back Baraka Badi, left-back Denis Odhiambo, Reagan Otieno, Victor Omondi, captain Simon Abuko, and Robinson Kamura have all left the Bankers, who finished seventh with 46 points last season.

Momanyi joins Bandari Bandari FC and has signed former Talanta midfielder Enock Momanyi.

Bandari has been on a spending spree, adding Wazito midfielder Fidel Origa, Kariobangi Sharks duo Douglas Mokaya and Felix Oluoch, AFC Leopards' Omar Somobwana, and Coastal Heroes' Mohammed Abeid to their squad.

Musa Hassan Musa, chairman of Bandari's technical committee, stated that Momanyi is an important part of the club's preparations as they pursue the title.

"We have decided to step up our title defense this season, and we are looking for players who will help us achieve that goal," Musa said.

Bandari has also confirmed that veteran Congolese defenders Felly Mulumba and Michael Wanyika's contracts have been extended for another year.
