After exactly a year, flyer Pius Omachi was back on the pitch for a Kenyan Premier League match after coming on as a substitute on Sunday 4 February 2024 in a matchday 20 tie against Shabana in Machakos.
Omachi was introduced in the final 13 minutes of play in place of Samuel Kapen for only his second top-flight game.

“The season has gone on well for the Nnairobi City Stars though it has been hard for me to get back to the squad due to stiff competition,”
“But I am happy that now things are flowing and I am back to the setup. I do believe that things will only get better from here,”
Omachi’s only other game – his debut – was on 4 February 2023 against Gor Mahia in Kasarani after swapping places with Ezekiel Odera in the 73rd minute.
Misfortune struck soon after and he was rendered unavailable for the rest of the season due to injury forcing him to undergo lengthy rehab.
He only just returned and his first game in the current season has come after being an unused substitute in games against Posta Rangers, and AFC Leopards.
