Willis Ochieng Oganyo (born 10 October 1981 in Mathare) is a Kenyan footballer who plays for Western Stima in the Tusker Premier League as a goalkeeper. He has also played for the Kenya national football team.

Career[edit]

Ochieng played for Kenyan Premier League club Chemelil Sugar and Mumias Sugar FC,[1] before moving to Free State Stars in South Africa where he played from 2003 to 2005. He joined Swedish club Skellefteå FF in 2006. In the middle of the 2007 season he moved to IFK Mariehamn and played eight matches for the club. The following year he started as the club's first keeper, but got injured in his sixth match which meant his season was over. He signed a three-year contract with the club after his first season in Finland.[2]

Ochieng was reported to be playing for Tanzanian football club Simba. Finnish police is investigating the corruption case after he left IFK Mariehamn. Singaporean Wilson Raj Perumal is said to have paid 50 000 euros to Ochieng of possibly having allowed two times some easy goals.[3] He signed a one-year contract with Western Stima as a free agent on 7 December 2012. It is reported he will play the role of goalkeeper coach as well as playing for the club.[4]

Ochieng was part of the Kenyan squad that participated at the 2004 African Cup of Nations.[5]
