Vihiga’s head of communication Peter Atsiaya had told Goal that the player would like a team where he can get more playing time seeing Gor Mahia as a club where getting playing time might be a problem for him.

On Friday, Organizing Secretary Judith Nyangi confirmed that K’Ogalo have been forced to grant the player his wish by stopping the negotiations at least for this transfer window. “We wanted to sign Ochieng’ (Bernard) but he was not free to join us. So we thought it would be wise if we stop the search for now until next time.”
