Striker Ezekiel Odera Omulo scored the winning goal as Nairobi City Stars hit hosts Wazito FC 1-0 on Monday 9 May 2022 in a 29th round FKF Premier League match at Kasarani Annex.

Odera’s goal, his eighth of the season, came via the penalty spot after Timothy Ouma was fouled in the box by a Wazito defender.

The goal, the first penalty scored by City Stars this season, improved Odera’s goals in City Stars colors, in all competitions, to 32 to tie Gambian hitman Ebrima Sanneh.

The two now sit third on the all-time scorers’ list behind legends Justus Basweti and Francis Thairu.

In early April, Odera scored once as City Stars beat Bandari 2-1 in Ruaraka to level up with another club legend Arthur Museve on 31 all-time goals.

“The most important part about the Monday’s goal is that it gave us a much-needed win in the league. The team had gone two games without a scoring a goal and I am glad to have ended that run,” said Odera

With eight goals, Odera now matches the top scorers in the last two seasons; Peter Opiyo (2020/21) and Ebrima Sanneh (2019/20).

Odera leads the scorer’s pack at Simba wa Nairobi, and has three goals on Timothy Ouma and Anthony Kimani who have both scored five goals each.
