Last season’s runners up Kakamega Homeboyz have appointed former Sofapaka tactician John Baraza as their new head coach.

 The former Kenyan international will replace Bernard Mwalala who was shown the door after failing to win the Football Kenya Federation Premier League title last season despite leading for the better part of the season.

 Mwalala has since joined 2010 FKF-PL champions Ulinzi Stars as head coach.

 Baraza who prior to his appointment was attached to National Super League side Mara Sugar will be deputized by Peter Okidi with veteran tactician Edward Manoah taking up the technical director role.

 The club also confirmed former Kenyan international in Ramadhan Balala as their new trainer while David Juma retains his goalkeepers’ trainer role.

 Baraza last coached in the top flight in December 2020 before he was sacked by Sofapaka after a poor start to the 2020/21 season.

 The following year he joined FKF Division Two Side Equity Bank and was named Mara Sugar coach in May this year.
