Okra becomes the first player to leave the Wekundu Wa Msimbazi after a disturbing season that saw them finish without silverware. One of Okra’s best moments at Simba was when he scored the opener in the derby against rivals Young Africans (Yanga SC) after receiving a neat pass from Clatous Chama.

Simba have publicly come out to confirm that several players will leave the club ahead of the 2023-24 season. They failed to wrestle the league title from Yanga, who won it with two matches to spare and they were also eliminated from the Azam FC Cup after losing 2-1 against Azam FC in the semi-finals.

Simba represented Tanzania in the Caf Champions League but their journey came to an end in the quarter-final stage after losing 4-3 on penalties to Wydad AC.
