Head Coach Nicholas Muyoti termed the youngster as one of the promising talents whose contribution will help the team immensely.

Nairobi City Stars have sealed the acquisition of left-back Rogers Obusu Wasega from Laiser Hill Academy on a three-year deal.

The teenager was scouted at the Chapa Dimba Rift Valley regional finals in Nakuru in November 2023 and has been training with the team since December.

During the finals, PASC Langa from Uasin Gishu County and Wiyeta Girls from Trans Nzoia County were crowned champions .PASC Langa defeated Obusu’s Laiser Hill 2-1 in the fiercely contested finals at ASK Showground Nakuru , earning a ticket to the nationals later in 2024.

“It’s all about giving chances to the young players which is our policy. He has the right qualities to operate on either side of the left channel as a defender or winger. We welcome him onboard,” said City Stars team coordinator Samson Otieno in an interview with the club.

City Stars' head Coach Nicholas Muyoti termed the youngster as one of the promising talents whose contribution will help the team immensely.

“From what we have seen, he is a good lad and very promising. He has a lot of unique attributes as a left-footed player and is a very good addition to our setup. He is an asset with age on his side,” said head coach Nicholas Muyoti

Obusu on his part expressed pleasure after sealing a move that is definitely an upgrade in his career.

“I am greatly honored to have the opportunity to join Nairobi City Stars. It’s a big step and I wish to use this rare chance to showcase what I have to the benefit of the club,” he told club media.

Until the arrival of Obusu, City Stars left back department only had Dennis Decha Wanjala, and the experienced skipper Calvin Masawa who also operates as a right back.
Obusu will don jersey no. 24.

Safaricom Chapa Dimba aims to provide a structured platform for scouts and coaches to tap into new talent and build feeder systems for the Kenyan football leagues across the country while also training a total of 250 coaches. The football tournament targets young people aged between 16 and 20 years old.
