Harambee Stars Head Coach Francis Kimanzi Sacked

Francis Kimanzi and his entire technical bench, consisting of assistant coach Zedekiah Otieno and goalkeeping coach Lawrence Webo have parted ways with Harambee Stars with immediate effect.

This is according to Football Kenya Federation (FKF) who said their departure was by mutual consent.

“The Federation is immensely grateful to coach Kimanzi and his departing members of staff that include assistant coach Zedekiah Otieno and goalkeeper trainer Lawrence Webo for their exemplary work, dedication, and unrivaled professionalism, which has strengthened Kenya’s chances of qualifying for the Afcon 2022 final tournament.”

FKF says it will unveil a new coach on Wednesday.

The former Mathare United tactician leaves after serving the national team a year and two months. He led Kenya to a 1-1 draw away to Egypt in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers before being held by Togo at home by the same margin.
