The USA-based Rochester Rhinos player, who has been struggling with a groin injury will partner Auxerre striker Dennis Oliech upfront in the match which sees Kenya switch from their tried and tested 5-3-2 formation to 4-4-2.
"There will be changes in the midfield. We are strong enough to use more attacking options," he said before departure on Friday.
Kenya beat Mozambique 2-1 in the first leg at home last June to register their first victory and move into third place behind group leaders Tunisia and Nigeria. Mozambique have only one point from three matches and are bottom of the group.
