That followed his heroics on Saturday where he delivered a goal and assist to lead Simba wa Nairobi to a 2-1 win over Sofapaka in Kasarani Annex.

Inevitably, he was named the man of the match, before making it to the team of the week, as well as earned a nomination for the player of the week.

It was a repeat performance from Etemesi as he had a similar show the previous weekend where he came through for the team with a goal, then earned a penalty that was eventually buried home by Rowland Makati for City Stars to come from behind to see off Nzoia Sugar 2-1 in Ruaraka.
At the end of that game, Makati – after scoring his maiden top-flight goal that turned out to be the winner – was named the MVP. Ultimately, he made it to the team of the week at the end of match day four.

“It is very encouraging to see our young players making a statement and making a difference in the team,” said team coordinator Samson Otieno
“It’s no mean fete to be ranked amongst the best in the league after a match day. Only returns that earn a team points can get you there. Kudos to Makati and Etemesi.” he added
