Hours after being held to a  draw by the visiting Kakamega Homeboyz in Kisumu, Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Western Stima has named Ugandan Richard Makumbi as their new head coach on a two year deal.

This is part of a strategy by the club to avoid the drop wih the current head coach Mr Henry Omino redeployed to take the Technical Director job with his assistant Mr Patrick Odhiambo losing his job in the process.

New Assistant

The Club chairman Mr Laban Jobita while confirming the news said Makumbi will come with his assistant and will get the support needed to steer the club to safety.

"We have reshuffled our technical bench with Makumbi now becoming our head coach. He will come with his assistants and at Stima he should expect full support from the management as we bid to get back to where the club rightfully belongs.

"Omino (Henry) will be our Technical Director  but unfortunately we will have to part ways with Patrick Odhiambo who has served us so well. Makumbi will be coming with his assistant and we are hopeful that with the help of Omino we will be having a formidable  force," Jobita said.

Tough Task

Makumbi has a tough task if he is to help the club avoid relegation with the team currently at 16th position with 21 points; just one point above bottom placed Muhoroni Youth.

Prior to his appointment, Makumbi was the head coach of Mbarara FC in his native Uganda.
