Gor Mahia custodian Boniface Oluoch has extended his stay with the reigning Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions for a further three years as has been confirmed by the club's CEO Lodvick Aduda.
Oluoch’s stay at the club was to come to an end in January and according to Aduda this was a major move by the club in tying down one of the loyal and best servants of the team. The news comes after the confirmation that the 18 time KPL champions have resigned midfielder Kenneth Muguna as well as bringing on board former Tusker defender Shafiq Batambuze in preparations for the coming season.
“We have renewed Oluoch’s contract for another three years. His last contract was to end in January 2019 and this is a good move since he has been one of our best servant in recent years,” Aduda told Soka.
Oluoch joined Gor Mahia at the start of the 2015 season from rivals Tusker FC and has since won the KPL title three times since his arrival.

Oluoch despite being the undisputed number one goalkeeper for the club has seen his competitors Shaban Odhoji and Fredrick Odhiambo give him a run for his money in the just concluded season with the three used periodically in a campaign that saw K'Ogallo reach new heights with their continental exploits.
The keeper has also seen his spot in the national team taken up by Tusker's Patrick Matasi who has excelled after injury kept Oluoch out of contention for the recent assignments against Ghana and Ethiopia.
