Harambee Stars confirm Okumbi to replace Williamson as new coach

22 February 2016, 08:11

Nairobi -Kenya on Saturday replaced Bobby Williamson with a former youth football coach Stanley Okumbi for the next round of African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

New Football Kenya Federation (FKF) chairman Nick Mwendwa said Okumbi, who coached Kenyan premiership side, Mathare United last season, will take interim charge of the Harambee Stars when they play Guinea Bissau away in Bissau next month.

Williamson, who had been the Kenyan national coach since August, 2014, was believed to be owed about 30 million shillings (30,000 dollars) in salary arrears by the former FKF administration of Sammy Nyamweya which was voted out office earlier this month.

"The appointment of Okumbi is geared towards building local capacity," said Mwendwa.

"We have picked our own whom I believe have the capacity to do the job. Personally I love the passing game and believe in our own style.

Former international Musa Otieno, who acted as Williamson's deputy has been retained.

Under Williamson Kenya struggled in their two opening round 2017 Nations Cup matches, drawing 1-1 draw away to Congo and losing 2-1 at home to Zambia.
