Harambee Stars head coach Jacob 'Ghost' Mulee has been relieved of his duties, the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) said on Wednesday night.

In a statement published on their official social media pages, Football Kenya Federation (FKF) announced that Mulee had parted ways with the National Team alongside his assistant Twahir Muhidin and Goalkeeping Coach Haggai Azande with immediate effect.

"Football Kenya Federation and Harambee Stars head coach Jacob 'Ghost' Mulee, his assistant [Twahir] Muhiddin, and the goalkeeping coach, [Haggai] Azande have reached a decision to part ways on mutual consent, effective immediately," FKF CEO Barry Otieno said in a statement.

"Assistant coaches Ken Odhiambo and William Muluya will remain in the team as the federation works out to restructure the Harambee Stars technical bench ahead of the 2022 World Cup qualifier against Mali scheduled for October 6, 2021, and October 12, 2021 home and away respectively.

"FKF is immensely grateful to coach Mulee and his departing members of the staff for their dedicated service and workmanship. This federation wishes them all the best in their future endeavours. The search for a new national team head coach is already underway and an announcement will soon be made in that regard.

"There will be no further comment from FKF until a new appointment is made."

The announcement comes after he led Harambee Stars in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Uganda and Rwanda.
