After a shameful 3-2 loss by Harambee Stars on Tuesday to Central African Republic and a 2-2 draw with Comoros in the first friendly in Morocco, Football Kenya Federation(FKF) has moved in haste to reconstitute the bench.

Head Coach Stanley Okumbi has been redeployed to handle the Under 20 side. Assistant coach Frank Ouna will now shift his attention to Kenyan Premier League  side Wazito FC while goal keeper coach Haggai Azande goes back to Tusker FC.Both Ouna and Azande will be redeployed soon for other national team roles.

FKF is expected to announce a foreign coach soon.

Okumbi took over as Harambee Stars coach in February 2016 and  went on to register mixed results culminating in Harambee Stars failing to make it to the last African Cup of Nations.

Belgian Paul Put took over last September and left after three months complaining that his assistants Okumbi and John Kamau were not equal to the task.

Dutch coach Ruud Krool is tipped to take over as the Harambee Stars Coach.
