Harambee Stars Assistant Head Coach zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno is set to take over the team in it’s forthcoming clash after Coach Francis Kimanzi was suspended after allegedly roughing up a fourth official in the ongoing CECAFA Senior challenge in Kampala, Uganda.
The coach disagreed with the said official in a dressing room in the Startimes Stadium, Kampala, where CECAFA is being held.
CECAFA Secretary General Nicholas Misonye signed a petition against the Harambee Stars coach, making him miss the Sudan and Zanzibar games against Harambee Stars. The two matches will have Zedekiah Otieno oversee the team. Zico has also been warned against such misconduct as the penalty will be same.
Kenya -on Sunday began the campaign on quite a high note beating her Southern neighbours -Tanzania 1-0. The team is slated to take on Sudan and Zanzibar, still in group stages.
