Mwaura takes charge as Nzoia Sugar activate search for Solo’s replacement

Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Nzoia Sugar is in the search for a new head coach following Godfrey Solo Oduor’s departure and in the meantime, Peter Mwaura has taken charge.

Oduor had joined the team towards the end of the 2018/19 season on a three year deal and guided the team for 10 matches before landing a more lucrative deal as an assistant coach at KCB, thus forcing the millers to restart their search.

Chairman Ngisa Mokua has revealed the club has a number of prospective candidates for the head coach’s role.

“We gave Oduor the green light to leave the club and we are now looking for his replacement. In the meantime Peter Mwaura is in charge,” Mokua told Soka.

The club is currently conducting trials to beef up the playing unit, and Mokua is confident the team will be a stronger unit in the coming season.

“The trials are still on; we are looking to get some top talent to incorporate in the team and we are confident about that,” he said.

In the coming season, Nzoia Sugar will be hoping to better the 12th position the team attained in 2018/19.
