Wanyama comes from a sporting family that includes football stars Victor Wanyama, McDonald Mariga, winner of Champions League title with Inter Millan and their father Noah, who played for AFC Leopards.

Wanyama hopes to help Cortegada survive relegation. The team is currently second last in the log.
