Mwangi, Okoth released

David Mwangi in a past KPL match at the Thika Stadium. He has left the club alongside Ronald Okoth.

After signing three players, Mathare United has agreed to part ways with long serving defender David Mwangi and Ronald Okoth as the June transfer window continues to gather pace. 

Mwangi, who joined the team in Janaury 2013, is expected to join Tusker as part of the deal that saw the club acquire the services of experienced utility defender Samuel Olwande. 

Mutual agreement 

On the other hand, Okoth--who was signed in June 2016--terminated his contract on mutual agreement after finding playing time hard to come by in the latter stages of the first leg of the current campaign. 

Speaking on the loss of the two players, head coach Francis Kimanzi expressed his gratitude for their dedication to the team adding that they still have a bright future ahead of them. 

Loyal servant 

"Mwnagi has been a loyal servant to the team and there was no need to hold on to him if he has found greener pastures elsewhere. This is a way of thanking him for the service he has given this team. Okoth also had a good time here and I believe he has left a better player. We wish them all the best in their new teams," said Kimanzi. 

The departure of the duo now leaves Kimanzi with Frank Liyayi and Samuel Olwande as the options available at left back while newly signed Ronald Reagan is expected to fill Okoth's void.
