AFC Leopards stopper Robinson Kamura is set to return to action before their GOtv Shield clash quarter finals against National Super League side Wazito FC on August 20th.
Kamura was involved in an accident two weeks ago along Thika Road, picking minor knocks which barred him from playing their matches against Western Stima and Bandari FC. The centre half, who was signed from Mathare United before the season commenced settled at the den with his defensive skills firing him to seniority, where tasks of guarding the goal were counted on him and did not disappoint. However, the Kenyan International was involved in an accident on July 2, leaving him with a knock on the hip and other bruises on the limbs.
The club through the chairman Dan Mule, confirmed that the defender will be back before their clash against Wazito. “We expect him to be back before our game against Wazito since his condition has improved. He has responded well to drugs and hopefully, he will be fully fit. I have talked to the doctor and he has confirmed that he can begin light training sessions. We missed him in three matches and as a club, we are happy he did not pick major injuries and he is finally back.”
Kamura’s absence was felt in their last three duels, where they lost twice to Western Stima and Bandari before and sharing spoils with Stima.
AFC have further confirmed that they will let their striker Vincent Oburu chase his European dream if he succeeds in his trials. Oburu’s agent had approached Leopards with intentions to take the rookie for trials in Swedish third tier side, Arameiska once the current election fever is over.
Oburu, who is a product of Leopards junior side, has had a sensational career since his elevation to the senior team in the second leg where he currently leads the scoring charts in the GOtv Shield tournament.
“He has a contract with us and his agent says he will take him for trials once the season ends. If he succeeds in his trials we will not block his European dream.”
Once the move materialises, Oburu will join Kenyan duo of Eric Johanna and David King’atua who ply their trade with Swedish clubs.
