Today, a total of 30 coaches began a long training in Nairobi that will take over a month.
Barry Otieno, who is the FKF CEO, said that the course was focused on improving the capability of local coaches. “Every coach here we trained at the CAF D level; they went out to academies, clubs, and schools to work, and now we get to move them to the next level.” “This is what we are really interested in—developing active coaches and raising them to a higher technical level,” he said.
Among those in attendance is former Sofapaka player Ronald Okoth, CEO of RO Sports Academy, who said it was an opportunity to build himself.
Dominique Niyonzima, a FIFA technical adviser for East and West Africa, is in charge of the program. Instructors Salim Ali and Leonard Odipo are running the training, which is scheduled to end on April 14.
