TU-K Student Causing Ripples in 2015 CECAFA Challenge
Michael Olunga, Gor Mahia’s sensational striker is a student at The Technical University of Kenya (TU-K).
Olunga has been causing all sorts of trouble for teams that have faced Gor Mahia during this years’ edition of the Paul Kagame Cup being played in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Olunga, a second year student pursuing a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Geospatial Engineering, is likely to win the golden boot. He has so far scored five goals.
The TU-K student’s exploits for the national team Harambee Stars and his club Gor Mahia, fondly known as K’Ogalo, has made him a house hold name, not only in Kenya but the East African region.
During Friday’s match against Al Khartoum National Club, Olunga converted a penalty, saving K’Ogalo who had conceded a third-minute goal. By the final whistle, K’Ogalo had won 3: 1. The finals will be played on Sunday.
Since making a debut in soccer, Olunga has played for leading clubs in Kenya such as Tusker and Thika United before joining Gor Mahia.
