Tanzania: Okwi,Players Cherish Simba Feat

FORMER Simba SC striker Emmanuel Okwi took time on his Instagram account to congratulate his former employer for winning the league title for the third season in a row.

Simba perfectly defended their championship on Sunday despite being held to a goalless draw with Tanzania Prisons at Sokoine Stadium in Mbeya.

The Msimbazi Street giants needed just one point from the tricky fixture to re-claim the silverware and earn a ticket to fly high the national colours in CAF Champions League (CAF CL) next season.

But Okwi, who has been a popular player in the country after playing for both Simba and their traditional rivals Young Africans, spent his moment on his Instagram page to hail Simba where he wrote: “League champions for third consecutive time. Well deserved.”

However, immediately after lifting their third back to back Mainland Premier League title, some players of Simba SC diverted their excitement to their Instagram pages where they applauded themselves.

It all started with the team’s defender Pascal Wawa who on his Instagram wall wrote: “All the glory be returned to God. Congratulations to all the players, technical staff and supporters for this hard work in this year champions.”

Also, the lethal Rwandan striker Meddie Kagere, who is still the current top goal scorer with 19 goals, looks on course to win back the league’s golden boot wrote: “Thanks to my teammates for completing the painting. Let’s paint the next.”

Again, midfielder Ibrahim Ajib despite posting himself and his colleagues Mohamed Hussein and Said Ndemla singing a song hailing their team for retaining the trophy, he wrote: “I needed a champion, so, I became one.”
