Forward Yuto Kusaba made his Kenyan Premier League on Sunday 4 February 2024 with a cameo show against Shabana at the Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos during a matchday 20 tie.

Yuto, a Japanese National, came on in the 77th minute for Dennis Oalo to have a feel of the Kenyan top flight.

“It felt nice to finally play at this level as I had been waiting for this opportunity,”

“The Shabana game was competitive and it gave me an idea of what I need to do to approach the upcoming games,”

“I hope to build upon this first game and get City Stars back to winning ways,”

Yuto joined City Stars in the offseason in August 2023 but was registered in the current mid-transfer that opened in January 2024.

Yuto becomes the seventh City Stars player to be introduced to the Kenyan top flight this season, and the 20th by coach Nicholas Muyoti in the past three seasons.

Wycliffe Omondi, Gilbert Abala, Brian Mose Nyambane and Brian Mzee made their debuts in matchday one against Muhoroni Youth, while the duo of Abuyeka Kubasu and Robinson Asenwa got their maiden games in matchday four against Gor Mahia.
