Red-hot Uganda Cranes and Simba SC forward Emmanuel Arnold Okwi has been named the player of the month for October in the Tanzanian topflight league.
Okwi who scored in every game in the month of October guided Simba SC to a flawless run that saw them win 4 out of the 4 league games at stake.
A brace against Alliance FC, a goal each against Africa Lyon and Stand United plus a hat trick over Ruvu Shooting ensured Okwi wins the monthly award with 7 goals.
Okwi and teammates are sitting 2nd on the league table with 26 points from 11 games. They are 4 points behind Nicholas Wadada’s Azam FC who have played a game more.
The Award committee also named Azam FC’s tactician Hans Pluijm as the coach of the month of October. To achieve the feat, the Dutchman beat Simba’s Patrick Aussems and Mbeya City’s Ramadhan Nsazwirano
