Stars given an extra day off



The Kenyan national team have been given an extra day off to enjoy the festive period before they must report for duty ahead of their African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier against Burundi.

Harambee Stars will now return to camp on Friday 28 December, with them set to host Burundi in Nairobi on Saturday 5 January. Kenya lost the first leg 1-0 in Bujumbura.

Football Kenya Federation released a statement confirming the change in plans.

“Kindly note that the national team Harambee Stars reporting date has moved to Friday 28 December 2012.”

In other news, the side’s head coach James Nandwa lost his father on Tuesday 25 December after a short illness and as such will not be joining the team immediately on their return.

Nandwa, whose father will be laid to rest on Saturday 29 December, however, confirmed that his deputy Ken Odhiambo will handle the team’s programme in his absence.
