Baraza confirms All Stars approach, but stays attached to millers

Chemelil Sugar FC head coach Francis Baraza has confirmed that indeed he has been approached by struggling Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side, Kisumu All Stars.

Baraza, who has been with the millers for the last two seasons, has been away from his work station for four weeks now, as he attends to personal matters, his mother having been sick for the past few weeks.

Nothing of the sort

He refuted the reports that he has already agreed to a deal to join the newly promoted side, indicating that he may only give a consideration to such when his mother recovers.

“There is nothing of the sort. I am also getting it on the media, because for the last four weeks I have been away, tending to my mother, who has been sick for a while now and it is a very tough moment for me.

“However, I can confirm they approached me but there is nothing much for now. My employer knows I am out on official leave to attend to this domestic issue. Maybe afterwards I will be able to address this issue,” he told Soka.

Kisumu All Stars is currently under veteran coach Henry Omino, who has previously handled Western Stima.


Kisumu All Stars have so far managed three points from their opening eight matches of the season. Along with Chemelil Sugar, they are the sides without a win so far in the league.

Chemelil are rock bottom in the league, with just a point from seven matches, having also dished out a walkover.
