Ulinzi Stars Appoints Benard Mwalala As The Club’s Head Coach

Ulinzi Stars have appointed the immediate former coach for Kakamega Homeboyz, Benard Mwalala as the club’s new head coach.

He will be assisted by Vincent Otieno who has been serving as a stand- in coach since July after  coach Benjamin Nyangweso was relieved of his duties and Khamisi Abdalla Mohammed will be joining him.

Mwalala is a household name in Kenyan football.

He previously played for Harambee Stars before crossing over to the technical bench where he has coached Nzoia Sugar, Bandari and Kakamega Homeboyz.

In July he parted ways with Kakamega Homeboyz after guiding them to a second-place finish in the 2021/22 FKF Premier League season behind 13-time champions Tusker on goal difference (25 over 21).

At Bandari where he served between 2018-2020, Mwalala led the dockers to a second place finish behind Gor Mahia on two occasions.

He also led the Mombasa-based club to the Caf Confederation Cup play-off stage in 2019 where they were eliminated by Guinea’s Horoya AC.

He has served his immediate former club for the past two seasons and was an assistant coach to Nicholas Muyoti in the 2020/21 season.
