Former Gor Mahia midfielder Francis Kahata has revealed on how Meddie Kagere convinced him to join Simba S.C. of Tanzanian from Gor Mahia.
Kahata said that leaving Gor Mahia was not an easy decision, because he felt so attached to the club.
He said the club approached him for the first time two years ago, but he refused their offer until a Ugandan-born Rwandan footballer, Meddie Kagere, intervened.
“Having exploited the available avenues Simba S.C resorted to using Kagere to convince because he was a friend and a teammate at Gor Mahia,” said Kagere.
He added that Kagere told him the club was the best club to play for and it takes good care of its players.
Kahata said he had a lot of misconception about the club and Tanzanian league, but Kagere explained to him everything in detail, making him make the decision of leaving Gor Mahia.
Early on the player said Gor Mahia did not show any interest of retaining him, leaving him guessing about his next move.
Kahata is pocketing a monthly salary of Sh350,000 and he has been given a free fully furnished house.
