Dennis Oliech in action for Harambee Stars

Legendary Harambee Stars striker Dennis Oliech could make a dramatic return to Kenyan football in January 2019.

15 years after he last featured in the Kenyan league for Mathare United, Oliech could become 17-time champions Gor Mahia’s latest signing.

Oliech confirmed that talks between his representatives and Gor Mahia had been on-going over the past 10 days.


“I am excited about the return and playing for a big club like Gor Mahia. I want to help them on the continental level.

“If things work out well, the move should be concluded by the end of this week,” he told Standard. ​​​​​​

Oliech further disclosed his hope that the move would see him play a role for Kenya’s national team which returns to the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in 2019 after a fourteen-year absence.

It was Oliech’s goals that fired Harambee Stars to their last appearance at the continental showpiece in Togo in 2004.
