The club emphasized the vast experience and expertise that these new coaching staff members bring to their roles, aligning with the club's strategic goals.

They expressed enthusiasm for the collaboration and welcomed the trio to the Kibera Black Stars family, looking forward to achieving their objectives.

"The three come with vast experience and skills in their respective fields and are expected to instil the same, which align with the strategic ambitions of the club. We welcome them to the Kibera Black Stars family as they assist us in realizing our goals," the club said in a statement.

"We look forward to a fruitful partnership between the three and the club," the statement concluded.

Kibera Black Stars part ways

These appointments follow the recent departure of the team's former head coach Samuel Njuguna, assistant coach Saidi Mohammed, and goalkeeper trainer Charles Abwodha.

The decision to part ways with the previous coaching staff came after a challenging start to the season, where the team managed just one win in their opening five matches.

The Management Board acknowledges the services of the three to Kibera Black Stars. Despite the parting ways, we appreciate their contributions during their time with us and wish them success in their future endeavors," the club announced.
