Onyango joins two other former Gor Mahia players who recently joined Simba namely Francis Kahata and Meddie Kagere.
Gor Mahia is struggling to hold on to their most priced assests owing to poor financial status.
The club, regarded as the biggest in Kenya, has not paid salaries for five months now and players are taking advantage of the situation to move for free.
