The Burundian international right back was signed from Rwandan league side Rayon Sports in January 2015.
His former clubs include Vital'O FC, A.P.R FC, Kiyovu Sports, and AS Vita Club.
He made his competitive debut in the 2015 DSTV Super Cup on the 11th February 2015 and his quality and technique earned him instant praise from fans and stakeholders within and without Gor Mahia.
Karim's exploits in that right channel would be rivaled by no other defender in the league. He covers a lot of ground, being a tireless runner able to move up and down the wing contributing regularly to the attack, without ever neglecting his defensive duties. It is going forward where he most impresses and is highly renowned for his crossing ability.
The defender deservedly bagged the SJAK Player of the Month award in June as prelude to being crowned the 2015 Defender of the Year at the FOYA awards.
In contribution to the club's glorious unbeaten season performance, he delivered 17 goal assists in offensive runs as Gor Mahia went on to score the most goals of the season (60) and also helped form the meanest defense and conceding the least goals (12).
With such an astounding debut season, we all will be looking forward to much more from Karim.
