Kenya international Kenneth Muguna Mugambi has signed a two-year deal with Tanzanian side Azam FC after his exit from Gor Mahia.
The 26-year-old parted ways with the Kenyan champions after a failed contract renewal and was heavily linked with a move to another Vodacom Premier League side Yanga SC.
Muguna joined K’Ogalo in 2017 from Western Stima after he was voted the Kenyan Premier League Most Valuable Player.
On Tuesday, the midfielder penned an emotional farewell note to Gor Mahia fans on social media, confirming his much publicized exit.
“Thanks to the chairman and the whole management for the effort they showed in renewing my contract which didn’t materialize because I felt I needed a new challenge. Thanks for the years we spent together,” he wrote on social media.

Muguna will pocket 6,000 US dollars a month which is an equivalent of 14 million Tanzanian shillings and 600,000 shillings in Kenyan currency.
The Harambee Stars man who was unveiled on Wednesday is the fourth signing by Azam ahead of the new season after Charles Zulu, Rodgers Kola and Edward Manyama.
