Its done and dusted.Gor Mahia are the 2018 Kenyan Premier League champions having won their 17th league title in the Sportpesa sponsored league.

Its been a fantastic run for  Coach Dylan Kerr, just one year and few months at the club, the Englishman has guarded them to a successive title winning stint.
