KENYA: Congo United finally  snatches a win

Congo United registered their first win in the Kenya Premier League when they edged out AFC Leopards 1-0 in an entertaining match at the KPA Mbaraki Sports Club.

It was a sweet victory for new Congo United coach Gilbert Selebwa who took over from  sacked Gideon Ochieng early in the week.

Selebwa, formerly coach at Leopards, said he had proved a point to his former club who unceremoniously threw him out after he struggled with the team through the Nationwide League.

Congo United captain Rama Salim scored the all-important goal via a penalty in the 78th minute after he was brought down by Leopardsí skipper Nicholas Muyoti.

Kenya Football Federation vice-chairman Twaha Mbarak gave Congo a Sh20,000 cash award for their rare win.

Thika 1 Chemelil 0

At the Thika Municipal Stadium, Thika United FC edged Chemelili 1-0, the lone goal coming in the fifth minute when Ken Wendo curved a nice corner which was connected into the goal by Vincent  Nyaberi.

Referee Fidelis Wekesa had to stop the match for almost 10 minutes in the second half after a swam of bees invaded the field, resulting in players taking cover by lying flat on the field.

One yellow card was flashed during this encounter to Chemelilís mid-fielder Wellingtone Murwayi for foul play.

It was a relief for Thika United after winning the game.
