Olaba handed Leopards reins



After months of speculation, Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants AFC Leopards have finally confirmed Tom Olaba as their head coach.

Olaba, who took charge of the team as the deputy coach at the close of the 2012 season after the dismissal of the Jan Koops-led technical bench, has also been serving in the acting capacity as the team’s coach.

The former Kenya U20 and Mtibwa Coach has been given the mandate to lead the team in the upcoming season after the management revoked the appointment of Vitor Trinidad Salvado, citing that the Portuguese coach did not have enough credentials to guide the team.

Olaba’s appointment was confirmed by the club’s chairman Alex Ole Magelo during the unveiling ceremony of their new signings on Tuesday at Nyayo National Stadium.

“Olaba is an experienced coach and he has been with AFC Leopards for a long time. He knows the history of the club more than any of the other applicants. He has what it takes to reclaim the title with the club,” said Magelo.

“He will be in charge of the team and as the management, we will give him full support.”

The new players who were unveiled to the media include Obadiah Ndege, Jackson Saleh, Martin Musalia, Michael Wandera, Bernard Ongoma, Dennis Wafula, Patillah Omoto and Noah Abich.

Antony Modo Kimani, who joined Leopards from Mathare United, missed the occasion, as he is in Tunisia on a national duty with Harambee Stars.
