Kakamega Homeboyz head coach Nicholas Muyoti is understood to be considering his future at the FKF Premier League side just a day after guiding Abana Beingo to a 4-0 win over Western Stima at the Bukhungu Stadium.
A source that spoke to Kenyan Breaking KE notes that this has been orchestrated by the arrival of former Bandari head coach Bernard Mwalala, who was roped in at the club as Muyoti’s assistant.
According to the source, club chairman Cleophas Shimanyula alias Toto is however keen to keen to keep the 44-year-old.
“The President (Cleophas Shimanyula) wants the two (Muyoti and Mwalala) to work together. But you know these are two head coaches, each with his own style. If they don’t agree, one is bound to step down,” said the source.
The source added:
“While in Nairobi (against Kariobangi Sharks) Mwalala was on the bench but yesterday (against Western Stima) he was nowhere near the technical bench. He came in minutes into the first half, and headed straight to the VIP area to watch the game. I smelt a rat.”
Shimanyula has however rubbished Muyoti exit reports insisting the former Nzoia Sugar tactician is still at the helm of Kakamega Homeboyz, and that is not bound to change at least for now, he says.
“All that is hearsay. There is nothing like that. People are spreading what they don’t know. There is nothing like that,” a seemingly irritated Shimanyula said in a phone interview.
Shimanyula’s stand was echoed by club CEO Bernard Shitiabayi and calls to Muyoti have gone unanswered.
Muyoti, a former midfielder, replaced Bernard Mwalala as Nzoia Sugar head coach in July 2018 after the latter left for Bandari FC but Muyoti ditched the Millers seven months later for Bukhungu to replace Paul Nkata who was fired after match fixing allegations rocked Abana Beingo.
Kakamega Homeboyz are 7th on the FKF-PL standings with 23 points, 17 games into the season.
