Amavubi team captain Jacques Tuyisenge was officially unveiled by his new club Gor Mahia FC of the Kenya Premier League on Tuesday evening at the club secretariat, Nyayo national stadium in Nairobi.
The 24-year-old striker left the country on Monday evening after Amavubi were knocked out of the ongoing Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) in the quarter-finals on Saturday by DR Congo 2-1, to complete his transfer.
Tuyisenge signed a two-year contract with record 15 times Kenyan Premier League champion from Rwanda Police FC in a reported US$ 40,000 (about Rwf30 million) deal.
Tuyisenge will wear the number 9 shirt, the same number that he has been wearing in Police FC and Amavubi—he joins the reigning Kenyan Premier League champions as direct replacement for former Rwanda international Meddie Kagere.
Tuyisenge helped hosts Rwanda to the quarter-finals of the ongoing CHAN tournament after beating Ivory Coast and Gabon in the group stages before losing to Morocco.
He scored three goals for Amavubi at last year’s CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup in Ethiopia which helped Rwanda reach the final but lost to Uganda. Tuyisenge also led Police FC to last year’s Peace Cup.
The Kenya Premier League is set to kick off on February 17 and the former Etincelles and SC Kiyovu forward will make his debut against Chemelil Sugar FC.
