Baraza lands Stima job



Former Sony Sugar tactician Francis Baraza has been appointed the new coach of Tusker Premier League side Western Stima.

Baraza, who has also served as an assistant trainer to Kenya’s Harambee Stars, beat former AFC Leopards coach Jan Koops to the position, with both men applying for the job.

The post fell vacant at the end of the recently concluded season after the Power-men parted ways with Henry Omino, who paid the price for the club failing to qualify for the KPL Top 8 tournament for the second year in a row.

Stima’s chairman Laban Jobita has confirmed Baraza, an ex-Kenya international, will take charge of the Kakamega-based outfit going into the new season next year.

“Francis Baraza is the new coach and he will take over on a one-year contract on a renewable basis depending on the team’s performance in the coming season,” said Jobita.

“He is an experienced coach and we believe he will help us register positive results in the forthcoming season. We will fully support him and he will have a hand in the recruitment process,” added Jobita.

Baraza won the Tusker Premier League title with SoNy in 2006 before he was sacked in 2011 by the Millers.
