Former Kenya Premier League (KPL) champions Sofapaka have completed the signing of Kenyan international Michael Kibwage.
The defender signed a two-year contract on a free transfer from KCB Football Club after the expiry of his contract.
The former AFC Leopards defender was also being chased by champions Gor Mahia but Sofapaka offered the player better terms according to a source close to the club.
Kibwage had a trial offer from two South African sides – top league side Highlands Parks FC as well as second-tier side TS Galaxy Fc, but opted for the direct deal at Sofapaka.
He becomes the club’s seventh signing after having secured the services of Isaac Mitima, Michael Karamor, Michael Bodo, Kevin Omondi, Roy Okal and Paul Kiongera.
