Odhiambo has been coach Nandwa's right hand man when handling the team in 2012 but was a glaring omission when FA outlined future plans for Stars

Harambee Stars assistant coach James Nandwa is set to hold talks with Football Kenya Federation (FKF) regarding the future of his deputy, Ken Odhiambo.

Odhiambo - who's in the past had coaching spells at league sides Gor Mahia and City Stars, has been Nandwa right hand man when handling the select national team in 2012 but was a glaring omission in the federation's statement released on January 9, 2013, that outlined the future plans of Harambee Stars following the exit from 2014 African Nations Championships.

Kenya FA President Sam Nyamweya confirmed that they expect Nandwa to assist a yet to be appointed professional coach.

"Fkf is in the process of identifying a professional coach to take over the management of the national team technical bench. James Nandwa who has been handling the team on a caretaker basis remains the assistant coach as the federation is happy with the team's performance at the 2012 Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup," said Nyamweya's statement.


With the omission of Odhiambo, Nandwa insists he will hold a meeting with Nyamweya to discuss his future. "I will bring up the issue with the President. Its not upto me, and we have to see what the new coach will say but Odhiambo has been very helpful to our course and really assisted the team during the (2012) Cecafa tournament."
 
Odhiambo was however, unavailable for comment amidst reports that he is mulling over an offer to coach a Kenyan Premier League club.
