He scored six goals in five games – a pair of goals each in games against Mathare United, Posta Rangers and Vihiga Bullets within a three-week span.

Nairobi City Stars forward Kelvin Etemesi believes that he will add numbers to his goal tally from the remaining four Kenyan Premier League matches in the 2022-2023 season.

Etemesi currently leads the Simba wa Nairobi scoreboard with seven goals and is tied with fellow forward Samuel Kapen.

Both strikers joined City Stars last year from the lower tiers. Etemesi was signed from Kangemi All Stars while Kapen was acquired from National Super League side Kibera Black Stars.

“I first thank God for getting me this far in just my first season in the Kenyan topflight league,” he told club media.

“It is every attacker’s dream to score for their club. I feel good being among the top scorers in the league and I feel I can do better and score more goals before the season comes to an end,” he said

 


According to statistics from the club, Etemesi has so far featured in 21 of 30 City Stars league games this season and has clocked a total of 1,404 minutes.

He scored six goals in five games – a pair of goals each in games against Mathare United, Posta Rangers and Vihiga Bullets within a three-week span.

He was also on target in their 2-1 win over Kariobangi Sharks.

City Stars are set to play AFC Leopards, Nzoia Sugar, FC Talanta and Gor Mahia in the remaining matches of the season.
