Umar Kasumba

Ugandan striker Umaru Kasumba rescued a point for Sofapaka against Kariobangi Sharks in stoppage time, cancelling out George Abege’s early goal as both teams shared spoils in a match played on Thursday at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

The result saw Sofapaka go top of the table but level on points with Bandari (45) who they edge on goal difference.

Kasumba’s late strike meant he moved his tally to 11 goals in the Kenyan Premier League this season from 24 games so far.

The Ugandan target-man is now one goal behind joint leading scorers Allan Wanga of Kakamega Homeboyz and Ulinzi Stars’ Enosh Ochieng.

Sofapaka’s next game is against Sony Sugar on 21st April.

Kasumba featured for SC Villa Jogoo and Police FC before making a move to Sofapaka in Kenya.

In February this year, Kasumba was named the month’s best footballer in the Kenya Premier League.

His target is to win the golden boot this year and get a call up to the Uganda national team, The Cranes.
