With 4 games to go, the tally betters that of last season’s top scorer Eric Kapaito, who scored 16 goals in 34 games for Kariobangi Sharks.

After managing only five goals in the 2018 Kenya Premier League season, Kenyan International Allan Wanga is the top contender of the 2018/2019 season with 18 goals so far, a fete that has helped Kakamega Homeboyz record 14 wins in 30 matches so far.
