Sammy “Pamzo” Omollo evades journalists as Homeboyz’ Baraza speaks after 1-0 victory
Kakamega Homeboyz recorded their second win of the campaign, dispatching Kenya Police FC by a solitary goal at the Ulinzi Sports Complex in Lang’ata.
Moses Shumah struck right at the death after Sammy Pamzo Omollo’s backline allowed the new signing an easy time on the ball, allowing him to slot home comfortably.
Kakamega Homeboyz coach John Baraza was elated with the win saying his team deserved to reap maximum points after missing some clear cut chances.
“Shumah is a young player who has been with the team for just two weeks but has been doing well in training. He has done well even though the game was evenly contested by both teams. The win will help build confidence in my squad for upcoming matches,” said Baraza.
His counterpart Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo, who evaded journalists and dashed to the dressing room shortly after the game, was left living on borrowed time.
