Though Kimanzi is aware of the task ahead of him, he is confident of turning around Wazito’s fortunes in their five-year strategic plan.

Kimanzi is a Dutch-trained tactician. Wazito has offered him a four-year deal. He landed the new job barely a month after parting ways with the Football Kenya Federation (FKF).

“I’m very grateful and honored to be here. It wasn’t an easy decision to make because of the culture of the club (Wazito) and what I need as an individual. But at least after one to two weeks of trying to get things together, we managed to come in as one team in a full agreement with a common objective,” Kimanzi said during the unveiling yesterday.


“I’m once again honored, more so because they don one of my favorite jerseys (yellow). For some reasons, I don’t want to get into details. When I’m in a yellow and black jersey I always feel at home and more successful. And history speaks for itself on that part.”

Kimanzi says he is on a mission of not only winning trophies with Wazito. In addition, he intends to help players realize their dream. Also, he is planning to leave a lasting legacy at the club. The 44-year-old coach said that he is happy. He managed to pull together a very capable technical support team. It will help him better the objectives and achievements of Wazito.


Wazito CEO Dennis Gicheru assured Kimanzi and his team of the management’s support. “We thought of restructuring the club so that we can achieve our long term (five year) strategic plan of winning the league and cups as well as developing our youth team.

Gicheru said that they thought of an experienced bench when making their decision and that’s why they went for Kimanzi. John Kamau will be assisting him.
