Muki in action against Mathare United on Sat 26 Feb 2022 at the Thika Stadium. City Stars won 3-0

An Anthony Muki Kimani freekick is all that Nairobi City Stars needed to see off hosts Mathare United 1-0 during an eleventh-round FKF Premier League match played in Ruaraka on Sunday 22 January 2023.

Striker Ezekiel Odera earned the set piece after getting to the end of a long lob from keeper Jacob Osano.

Muki then finished it off with a ground shot that bounced over the line for the goal that separated the two sides.

With the win, City Stars improves to eight points and up the standings by a position to 15th as Mathare remains rooted in the 18-team log with a single point.

Next up for Simba wa Nairobi is a home game against Wazito on Wednesday 25 January 2023 at the same venue starting 3 pm.
