Harambe stars coach Francis Kimanzi and part of his backroom staff have resigned.
A statement from the Football Kenya Federation said that Kimanzi, Assistant coach Zedekiah Otieno and goalkeeper trainer Lawrence Webo have left the national team on mutual consent.
The federation has thanked them for their exemplary work, dedication and professionalism which has strengthened Kenya’s chances of qualifying for the AFCON 2022 tournament.
“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 unrivalled professionalism, which has strengthened Kenya’s chances of qualifying for the AFCON 2022 final tournament”, it said.
A replacement following their departer begins immediately.
Kimanzi took over in August last year following the exit of Frenchman Sabastian Migne whom he had deputized at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Finals in Egypt.
This is the third time he’s handled the stars as focus shifts to potential new candidates likely to be foreign tacticians.
