Nairobi City Stars flyer Samuel Kapen has dropped his comments on the first leg of the 2023-24 FKF Kenyan Premier League that saw the team hit a new high compared to last season.

After 17 rounds of games, Simba wa Nairobi settled on 30 points, an improvement of 18 points compared to the same stage last season.

“It wasn’t an easy first leg but we all made it possible,”

“The league is tough but as a team, we reached our target at the end of the first part. God willing we hope to achieve the set targets for the second leg too,”

After the first leg, Kapen has so far matched the four goals he scored last term at the same stage, and has since doubled his assists and key passes to make them four apiece compared to two each last season.

During the ended first leg, Kapen had a self high after earning three MVP awards after matches against, Posta Rangers, Ulinzi Stars, and FC Talanta.

He has appeared in the team of the week three times after games against AFC Leopards, Ulinzi Stars, and FC Talanta.

“I am giving my best to Simba wa Nairobi and hope to help the team to win more games and get more points,” he added, modestly

Kapen has so far featured in all games for City Stars this season clocking 1,332 minutes.
