Wazito has announced the departure of his coach Francis Kimanzi. The decision to part ways with Kimanzi and his coaching staff was formalized in a statement posted on the club’s Twitter account.
It is now official. Francis Kimanzi is no longer the coach of Wazito FC. The Kenyan Premier League club, which has been in financial difficulty in recent days, a situation which recently caused the boycott of players in training, has just parted ways with its coach and technical staff. “We confirm that coach Francis Kimanzi, his assistants Jeff Odongo and John Kamau, and goalkeeping coach Samuel Koko have left the club. We wish them good luck in their future endeavours,” the statement read.
Kimanzi’s sacking comes hours after the former Harambee Stars manager blasted the Moneybags for failing to settle his dues on time. According to the same statement from the club, the coach of the youth team, Fred Ambani, will take over as interim coach of the first team with immediate effect.
Ambani will work alongside Salim Babu and Elisha Otieno as assistants. As a reminder, Kimanzi is the sixth coach to be sacked by the club after Briton Stewart Hall, Stanley Okumbi, Fred Ouna, Hamisi Abdalla and Egyptian-American Melis Medo.
We can confirm that head coach Francis Kimanzi, his assistants Jeff Odongo and John Kamau, and the goalkeepers’ coach Samuel Koko have left the club. we wish them well in their future endeavours.
