The Kenyan Premier League (KPL) season is beginning to take shape, just as a number of key stakeholders are being shown the door. First it was Gor Mahia’s Anaba Awono, another coach has followed him to the exit door.

Kingi out

2008 KPL champions Mathare United have ushered in a new regime after reports coming from the team indicated that coach Gabriel Kingi Njoroge has resigned, even after leading Mathare United to their first premier league win of the season, albeit in seven attempts.

Last season’s deputy coach Stanley Okumbi, who worked under both the national team coach Francis Kimanzi (currently also the Sofapaka FC director of football) and the current Sofapaka coach Salim Ali, has already taken over the reins.

Coached U19 side

Until his appointment, Okumbi was a member of the Kariobangi Sharks technical bench. He also handled the Mathare United U19 team at the KPL U19 tournament last year.

Mathare United are currently placed second from bottom and a key role for Okumbi will be to return gloss to the KPL giants who have struggled to register good results so far.
