Kenyan Premier League side Sofapaka FC have officially parted ways with goalkeeper Mathias Kigonya after only four months.

Kigonya had reunited with the Batoto Ba Mungu in September last year but unfortunately their reunion couldn’t work out.

The Cranes shot stopper confirmed his departure on his social media accounts.

” Hello my friends and followers. Am notifying you about my departure from Sofapaka Fc. It has been a short spell but complicated.”

“I’m excited about the new opportunities ahead of me, however, there’s also a big part of me that’s sad to be saying goodbye to the amazing Sofapaka family.”

“I am grateful for having had the second chance to work at Sofapaka. I will never forget the kindness and professionalism of everyone at this club; I wish you the best in the reminder of the season.”

His departure comes days after the club announced that Davis Kasirye had left the club on mutual consent.

He leaves after playing an instrumental role for Sofapaka as they won the Jamhuri Cup as he saved a penalty and converted the winning kick against AFC Leopards.

Kigonya previously played for Sofapaka between 2016 and 2018 before he left for Zambia.

He has in the past played for Soana FC, Bright Stars and Zambia’s Forest Rangers from where he crossed to Azam FC in Tanzania last year.
