Blackberry set to join Randers

NAIROBI, Kenya, January 3- Kenya Premier League (KPL) player of the year George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo will this week join Danish Club Randers Fc on a long term deal.

The Gor Mahia FC striker leaves the country on Tuesday morning for Denmark where he will put pen to paper on his contract ending months of speculation.

“I am delighted to be moving to Europe as it has been one of my dreams. I have had two successful years at Gor but its time to move on to the next level. My dream is to play in the English Premier League and this is the first step towards achieving that goal,” said Odhiambo.

The teenage striker paid tribute to former coach James Siang’a who signed him up for Kogalo, “I would like to thank Siang’a because he gave me a chance to play for Gor and even though he coached me for just a few months, I learnt so much from him.”

Gor secretary Bob Arum said the club was delighted that Odhiambo had gotten his big break, “We are sad to lose him because he has been our best player for the last two years but at the same time we are encouraged because it’s a big breakthrough for Kenyan soccer. That a young man from humble background to go all the way and make it in life will be a huge encouragement to his peers so we are happy for George.”

The official was quick to reassure fans that the club has already made steps towards replacing Odhiambo.

“We have done our best to make sure that we replace him with other blackberrys. We will replace him the way we identified him; by going to the rural areas and pinpointing talent. We have already identified three strikers who will join us next season so fans should be rest assured that we are working hard.”

The 18 year old made his debut for Gor Mahia in February 2009 during their continental clash against APR of Rwanda. But he exploded in May that year scoring goals as Gor embarked on an impressive run in the second leg of the season finishing the season with nine goals.

The feat saw him crowned the KPL Young Player of the Year as well as the most promising man at the 2009 Safaricom Sportsman of the Year awards.

2010 was another successful season for the youngster as he again top scored for Gor with eight goals. But his contribution was just more than goals as he lead the Gor Mahia attack with poise and purpose helping the club achieve its best ever position in over a decade.

His exploits saw him crowned the KPL player of the Year at the annual awards.

    Hahaha. Right on Moses. Telling them as it is. The Bitterness Society of Kenya is simply an amalgamation of forces allied to Odinga’s Dying Movemement whose influence is rapidly shrinking to its rightful 50 mile radius around Bondo. I mean seriously, people like Kuguru, Ngunjiri  and Maina Njenga are not exactly the epitome of human virtue just like their benefactor Raila Odinga is not.

      Since when was being charged an affirmation of guilt? Have you ever heard of something in the constitution called the Bill of Rights??! 

      It is not difficult to see how the ICC, its masters and their local house niggers like yourself, have deigned to first create fabricated accusations against Uhuru and Ruto, charge them, and then turn around and use the said charges to insist on blocking them from running, contrary to their constitutional rights under the the Bill of Rights. However, you were so eager to persecute the two you forgot that to stop them, any law that purports to do so INCLUDING Chapter 6 on leadership and integrity MUST FIRST conform to the Bill of Rights being the constitution’s FUNDAMENTAL LAW and FOUNDATION. 

      Go and read your copy of the constitution IN THAT CONTEXT and look for the clause in the Bill of Rights that says and makes it clear that ONE IS PRESUMED INNOCENT UNLESS PROVEN GUILTY – THAT is FUNDAMENTAL LAW right there. 

      Calling for Uhuru and Ruto’s punishment therefore just goes to show your pathetic village lynch mob mindset, and is really a testament to the low standards by which proper information is disseminated by the media, allowing  all sorts of dunderheads to express outrageous ill-informed opinions such as yours.
