According to the Team Officer in Charge Captain Godwine Baraza said, the awards was initiated to ensure there was enough competition in the team.

“We want to ensure there is enough competition in the team as well as motivating those who do well and go out of their way. The two (Onyango and Saruni) have been quite impressive in the opening two months of the season. We congratulate them for their hard work” Baraza opined.

Onyango scored three goals during the CAF Confederations Cup matches against Al Hilal Benghazi and Smouha despite being ousted from the competition by the latter and received his first national team call up recently against Uganda Cranes and DR Congo.

Saruni who was a hero of a sort when the club eliminated Al Hilal in post-match penalties has only conceded two goals in four matches so far.
