After coming through a nervy draw in Kasarani against Mathare United two weeks ago, effectively ending Mathare’s hopes for a maiden League win, Tusker finally ended their seven year wait for the championship with ahrd fought 1-0 away win at Nakuru’s Red Berets with the goods provided by talismanic striker Allan Wanga who finished off a dream season for himself personally by clinching a proffessional contract with Angolan outfit Petro Atletico wher it is hoped he will get to show his stuff In Africa’s premier club competition (The champions league).
After a long, highly competitive and thankfully relatively undisturbed by court battles and if this
continues then news like this might be more more often than not. With the relatively small number of off the pitch cases settled the relagation fight this season sees Coast Stars and Homegrown go down with Mahakama (Which is swahili for Law courts) surviving quite literally thanks to a tribunal decision that handed them the points on a disputed tie against Ulinzi stars.
With Allan Wanga now gone Tusker will probably have to hope their luck with finding quality forwards holds out as they seek to defend their tite next season, which will be for the first time be broadcast live all over the continent on Supersport. The main challengers will most probably be Mathare United who have been there or thereabouts ever since they got into top flight football, Sony Sugar the former champions, while the likes of Military side Ulinzi Stars, Chemelil Sugar and Red Berets who finished this season in the mid table can get a positive start then anything could happen.
