Kenya: Omollo Set to Take Over Sony Sugar

Sony Sugar have reportedly agreed to bring in former Oserian and Tusker coach Sammy Omollo to take over the reigns at the Awendo-based side as Zedekiah Otieno plunges into the murky world of politics. Zico has made up his mind to vie for the position of ward representative in Kariobangi North ward.

Zico will be fighting it out for the position with the incumbent and his long time friend and Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Nairobi branch chairman, Michael Ouma.

Omollo has been given a two-year contract to take the 2006 champions back to the top after six years of playing catch up to the top teams in the KPL.

Ironically, the two teams that Omollo coached last season Tusker and Oserian finished at the top and at the bottom of the league respectively with the latter relegated to the Nationwide League.

The 2011 KPL Coach of the Year will have his work cut out at the Awendo outfit when pre-season training kicks off with his top two players Ismail Dunga and Enock Agwanda having left for greener pastures.Dunga is believed to be on his way to Tusker while Agwanda has hitched his wagon at Sofapaka.
