Football Kenya Federation (FKF) caretaker Committee today unveiled former Vihiga Queens head coach Alex Alumirah as the Harambee Starlets, the national women soccer team head coach.
Alumirah was appointed to spearhead the Kenyan starlets to qualify for the coming Africa Women Cup of Nations Qualifiers against Uganda next month.
The Aaron Ringera chaired Committee announced that Alumirah’s contract will expire when the committee leaves office after elections.
Ringera said the recruitment process has been very transparent and competitive, and our new Alumira. He will be assisted by Benter Achieng and Ann Aluoch, while Martha Karimi will be the team manager. The team goes into camp on Tuesday ahead of their crucial 2022 AWCON qualifier against Uganda.
“It is a great honor and I look forward to guiding this team to the best of my ability, and with the full support of the FKF Caretaker Committee, we shall guide this team to AWCON qualification,” Alumira said. “I have a responsibility to develop a philosophy for the women’s national football team and I will liaise with coaches to ensure that there is an elaborate plan for women’s football, a plan for posterity.”
