FKF, coach Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee part ways

FKF said the search for Mulee's replacement was already underway.


Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has announced it has on mutual consent parted ways with Harambee Stars Head Coach Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee.

In a statement signed by Secretary General Baarry Otien, FKF Wednesday said, —-“Mulee and his assistants Twahir Muhiddin and Goalkeeping coach Haggai Azande have reached a decision to part ways on mutual consent, effective immediately.”


The vetran coach who returned to the Harambee Stars job in October last year, has been under fire for poor results in the recent past.

This is after his side drew back to back against Uganda (0-0) and Rwanda (1-1) in Nairobi and Kigali respectively in the Fifa 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Ahead of a crucial double header against Group E leaders Mali, Otieno noted Ken Odhiambo and William Muluya, who also came in alongside Mulee in the team in 2020 would take charge on interim basis.

Kenya will take on the West Africans in Morocco on October 6 before hosting the return leg six days later in Nairobi.

After two games, both Kenya and Uganda are on two points in third and second. Mali has four points at the summit while Rwanda are the bottom team with a point.
