No other player in the Mainland Premier League has yet managed 15 goals this season. A mark Ugandan striker Emmanuel Okwi has now surpassed by two.
Okwi continued his incredible run of form on Monday evening to set another record for any Mainland Premier League player this season.
He found the net during the first half of simba Sports Club’s clash away to Mtibwa Sugar to help his outfit win 1-0, and extend their lead at the top to six points.
And in doing so, the Uganda Cranes star confirmed his status as the most prolific forward currently active in football in Tanzania .
Okwi now has 20 goals in all competitions this season and is the fist Mainland Premier League player to reach the milestone in 2017/2018.
The likes of John Bocco and Aubrey Chirwa who are both on 12 league goals could hit the mark later, but the Simba’s experienced striker is the man to beat right now when it comes to putting the ball in the net.
A $75,000 record signing from SC Villa in June, 2017 Okwi has slotted seamlessly into the Simba line-up, quickly re-establishing himself as a key player since returning to Tanzania after leaving Simba in 2015 for Danish outfit, Sondejysk.
