Moving to a new city might not seem like the most profound experience at first blush, but it can symbolize a lot of things.
Change, no matter how wonderful and full of opportunity has perplexed, challenged and inspired humans as long as we know.
In the same spirit, forward Tito Okello found it wise for a pilot study for him to know the challenges and opportunities ahead of him before joining Kenya giants, Gor Mahia.
“I contacted Dan ‘Muzeeyi’ Sserukuma because he left a legacy here (Gor Mahia) and Innocent Wafula who is one of the best players who have played for this team.
“I had to contact them and consult them more than once before I came here,” Okello told Gor Mahia media in an interview.
“I told them I have an offer from the club as I compared it with offers from elsewhere in Rwanda and Tanzania and they told me not to think twice about Gor Mahia.”
“They gave me a green light and I followed their advice and my dream thats why am here,” Okello added.
At Gor Mahia, Tito Okello is set to don his treasured shirt number, 10 that is usually married with ultimate expectations from football fans.
Okello joined the K’Ogalo as a free agent after his contract expired at Vipers where he helped the side emerge as Uganda Premier League champions in the 2019/20 season.
Okello joined Vipers SC at the start of the 2018-19 season after a brief spell at Benfica De Macau.
The lanky forward earlier played at Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) FC, BUL FC and had a short time at Tanzania’s African Lyon.
Gor Mahia has been a great harbour of Ugandan players, namely Jimmy Bageya, Godfrey Walusimbi, Dan Sserunkuma, Khalid Aucho, Shafiq Batambuze, Erisa Ssekisambu, Hashim Ssempala and Juma Balinya among others.
