Wazito has changed it’s name to Muhoroni Youth FC ahead of the new season of 2023/2024.
After rtaining the place to play in the Premier league after beating Migori Youth, the Football Kenya Federation said in a letter on Friday they had approved the club’s request to adopt a new name. FKF effected the changes on Thursday.
“Kindly note that the change has since been approved and the same shall be effected on the FKF Premier League fixtures,” a communication from the FKF, reads.
Muhoroni Youth’s slot in the second-tier competition was gifted to Darajani Gogo FC, who trace their origin in Nairobi’s Kibera shanties.
Wazito experienced a drastic downturn in their fortunes barely a season after controversial Dubai-based businessman Ricardo Badoer plunged enormous resources to acquire the club.
Fondly known as the Moneybags by their dotting fans, the club traces its origin to the University of Nairobi, where an enthusiastic group of alumni mooted the brilliant idea to mould the team.
They, however, got a lifeline after thumping NSL side Migori Youth FC 3-0 on aggregate in the promotion/relegation playoffs last week.
