National soccer team, Harambee Stars strikers Michael Ogada Olunga has literally been missing in action for some time now, leaving fans with questions of his whereabouts and what he is up to.

The striker went quiet since his Japanese side Keshiwa Reysol was relegated from the Japanese National League, known as the J-League, back in November last year.

Before then, the striker was an active social media user posting updates of his progress in Japan but he suddenly went quiet during a time leading to his sides’ relegation.

He never posted anything on his facebok page in November and December, last year.

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await another voice. Happy New Year 2019! Wishing you a fruitful year ahead,” reads his last post on facebook on January 01, 2019.

The Kenyan Striker joined Reysol in August last year from Chinese side Guangzhou Zhicheng. Earlier, he played for Girona FC in Spain on loan from the Chinese Super League side.

His team will now feature in the Japanese second tier league, known as J-League Division 2. The new season kicks off on the 24th of this month with Olunga’s side opening the campaign against Renofa Yamaguchi.

He previously played for Tusker FC, Thika United and Gor Mahia in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) and IF Djurgårdens in Sweden.

Olunga has played 32 matches and scored 14 goals for Harambee Stars since 2015.

He is among players expected to make Harambee Stars squad for the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt in June, this year.
