Grieving Nandwa puts Kenya first



Even as he mourns his father who passed away on Christmas day, Kenya head coach James Nandwa has promised that the team’s preparations for the return leg of the African Nations Championship qualifier against Burundi will not be affected.

The opening match, played on Sunday 16 December in Bujumbura, ended in a 1-0 scoreline in favour of Burundi.

Harambee Stars now need to raise their game if they are to progress, and Nandwa is determined to get the best out of his charges ahead of the crunch encounter on home soil.

“It is unfortunate that I lost one person who was very instrumental in my life and at such a critical time, but sometimes the Almighty has his own plans which we, humans, cannot understand,” said Nandwa.

“We are looking forward to winning the second leg match and because of the little time we have to prepare for it, we cannot afford to let personal issues get in our way. We shall resume training as per plans and give our all to the cause,” he vowed.

The team broke camp for the Christmas holidays and are set to reconvene on Sunday 30 December 2012. The match will be played on 5 January in Nairobi.
