Kenya Premier League (KPL) side Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) have parted ways with coach James "Ojijo" Omondi and assistant Peter Ambesta, Goal.com can exclusively reveal.
A KCB official who sought anonymity, confirmed that the two have left the club, which finished tenth in the just concluded 2012 Kenya Premier League (KPL) season.
Omondi took charge of the bankers late in the second leg after the club had sacked Leonard Saleh.
Omondi later confirmed to Goal.com that he and the assistant tactician had been shown the door for 'failing to achieve the club's target of finishing in top eight position last season.'
"Yes it is true that we have had our contracts with KCB terminated today (Tuesday). The club gave us a target of finishing the league amongst top eight when we took charge and that is something we could not attain because the team finished tenth."
"I want to thank KCB for giving me the opportunity to handle the side and want to state it clearly that I harbor no hard feelings with any one in the club more so the management office following the development."
"We had a job and targets that we were supposed to achieve, we did the best as the technical bench but we could not make it to the top eight at the end of the league."
Asked about his future, Omondi responded, "I know an opportunity will come up soon and I will be back in the dug outs."
