sofapaka copyNAIROBI, Kenya 31 December – Kenya Premier League club Sofapaka has signed two Burundi internationals in a bid to strengthen the team to challenge for the premiership title next season.

Striker Abdul Razak Fiston, 20, joins the 2009 Kenyan champions on a two-year deal from Rwanda club, Rayon Sport while defender Celestin Habonimana played for the Cecafa club champions, Vital ‘O.

Sofapaka boss Elly Kalekwa is pleased with the new signings, saying he hoped their presence would give the club the boost to regain the title next season.

“We want to have the strongest team next year and signing these two players is testimony that we mean business,” said Kalekwa.

“We have given the coaches everything they have asked for and they have no reason not to get the results.”

Sofapaka finished third in the league last season behind the winners, Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards, who took the runner-up spot.
