Sofapaka Win The Kenyan Premier League Title
Sofapaka made history when they won the Kenya Premier League (KPL) in their debut top flight season.

Two goals from John Baraza and a cracking shot from Zimbabwean Tafadzwa Dondo capped a remarkable first season for a team initially thought to be also-rans. They won 3-0 against Red Berets to secure the title.

Promoted only this year, Sofapaka have defied all odds to capture the trophy, including beating Mathare United and favourites Tusker.

The club, owned by Congolese businessman Elly Mboni Kalekwa and coached by Robert Matano, needed only a point to seal the . They secured the title in a spell of three minutes of madness, when Berets capitulated in front of their fans.

The brace from Baraza kept him top of the scoring charts with 15 goals. With only a game remaining before the league ends, Baraza can take the Golden Boot award, but threatening that individual title is second placed scorer, Tusker’s Joseph Emeka, who boasts 14 goals.

Meanwhile, one of Kenya’s best supported clubs, AFC Leopards, drew 0-0 against Sony Sugar to stay in the Premier League. The team only needed a point to escape relegation, and they did just that with the goalless draw.
