Since the 2006 KPL season, the 26- goals record held by retired Boniface Ambani, has stood for 17 years.
Many FKF-PL strikers have tried to break or level it but to no avail. In the 2020-21 FKF-PL season, the former Kariobangi Sharks striker Elvis Kapaito came close to leveling it, just missing it by two goals.
Over the years, it has proven to be a herculean task of getting near the golden 26-goal scoring record.
However, after 17 years, Police FC’s potent striker Elvis Rupia, eclipsed the unprecedented record with one game to spare before the season draws to a close.
In the penultimate game of the 2022-23 FKF-PL season, Elvis Rupia scored his double to reach 27 goals in the current season against the relegated Vihiga Bullets.
“The all-time record of 26 goals by best scorer Boniface Ambani in the year 2006 is broken and the new record is set by Elvis Rupia who has scored his 27th goal of the season.” Read a post from the club’s Facebook page.
