Thursday, 18 October 2012 Written By Ismael Kiyonga in Share Share Following his desire to switch nationality, Ugandan born Kenyan based striker Daniel 'Mzee' Sserukuma has recieved backing from one of his club officials at Gor Mahia FC. The dimunitive striker who so far netted 12 KPL goals this season came out on Wednesday and showed his desire to switch nationality and if selected play for Kenya national soccer team Harambe Stars. "I was talking about it with my agent and he promised to help me out because I want to change nationalities and maybe one day feature for Harambee Stars. I know there is still a possibility that Uganda might come calling though it has been long and I havent talked to anyone there. I hope my agent succeeds soon enough", he said. His wish has been backed by his club official Faiz Ochieng, who says the switch, if materialises, will be a great bonus to Kenya since as he puts it, the national team misses players of his quality upfront. Sserunkuma has forged a lethal partnership with Gor Mahias Rama Salim since joining in the mid season from Nairobi City Stars and Faiz believes the two can carry the club form to the national team with devastating effect to opponents and added that as a club, they will always be in favour of such a move and ready to back it and help out where necessary. "I hope it materialises; Harambee Stars miss players like him a natural finisher who is also good on the ball, and we all saw in the South Africa game (Kenya lost 2-1 to South Africa in a friendly on Tuesday) how badly we need finishers in the team. If it comes to fruition he will form a deadly combination with Rama upfront and with Oliech also in the team we will kiss our attacking woes bye", Faiz told Futaa.com one of Kenya's sports websites "He is a player who can add good pressure on opposing defenders and as a club I dont see why we should not support such a move. Since it is his wish he has our full backing we love Dan and want all the best for him. We believe this move will be good for him", he concluded. The Federation of Kenyan Football (FKF) is yet to come out with a statement on the issue but given that Sserunkuma has never been capped by Uganda, there is a chance he can make it for Kenya according to FIFA rules.
