Nairobi City Stars were treated to a rude welcome to the National Super League (NSL), losing their opener 3-1 at home to Wazito FC on Sunday at Nairobi’s Camp Toyoyo Grounds.

Goals from Pistone Mutamba, Austine Ochieng and Joe Waithira delivered Wazito’s second win in as many matches to leave the hosts’ bid to regain top flight status off to a miserable start.

In an earlier match the same venue, a first half goal blitz saw St. Josephs FC score four times past MOSCA FC to register a 4-1 win as they produced the response they would have desired following their 3-0 loss against Palos FC in their opening fixture last week.

Salim Akatha, Dominic Gwaro and a Wilson Andati double put the Nakuru-based side in the driving seat with Elisha Ochieno pulling one back from the spot.

Earlier on Saturday, the newly promoted  GFE 105 stunned FC  Talanta 5-2 humiliation to mark a banging start to life in the country’s second-tier.

Wakoli Zeka claimed a brilliant hat-trick to get his side off to a flying start an a day Kenyan Premier League (KPL) newbies Nzoia United also shocked champions Tusker FC by a similar result.
