An unconvincing one year with Gor Mahia has forced midfielder Jean Baptiste Mugiraneza to rejoin his former employers APR and it is now confirmed he will be with the Rwandese giants on a two year deal.
The midfielder, who is already in Rwanda with the team is expected to add the much needed strength in midfield ahead of their CAF Confederations Cup campaign where they begin their quest against Seychelles side Anse Reunion, the first leg slated for 9 February in Seychelles.
According to Soka Sources, Mugiraneza was allowed to join APR on a mutual agreement between the player and Gor Mahia despite having a one-year contract left with the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions.
The player has since been omitted from Gor Mahia's CAF squad submitted by the cub earlier this week, with the team having drafted a lot of their new acquisitions in the position - both Lawrence Juma, roped in from Nzoia Sugar, Cercidy Okeyo and Humphrrey Mieno both from Tusker.
His departure is also believed to have been pinned on the club’s need to comply with the foreign players' quota which only allows for only five players in the KPL
The club's foreign players' list already has Meddie Kagere, Jacques Tuyisenge (both Rwandese), Ugandan defender Godfrey Walusimbi, Burundian Karim Nizigiyimana and Ivory Coast striker Ephrem Guikan, all capable of making the team’s first eleven.
