Nairobi - Kakamega Homeboyz have announced the appointment of Mike Mururi as head coach ahead of the new Kenyan Premier League season.

deal and will have the tough task of keeping the newly-promoted team in
Kenya's top flight.
"I am happy for a return to coaching a Premier League side," he told Soka. "It's a new challenge in a new environment but all is possible with full support. Everything boils down on proper preparation.
"My immediate target is to help the club do well in the league and if possible, finish in a respectable position."

who knows his job being a former player and having coached a premier
league side. We are hopeful that with his experience, he will help us
reach greater heights," Shimanyula explained.
The new KPL season kicks off on in February and Homeboyz welcome Western Stima to the Bukhungu Stadium on the opening day.
