Just a day after landing a sponsorship deal with the County Government, Kakamega Homeboyz have pulled yet another surprise by releasing five players.
Former AFC Leopards goalkeeper, Ali Kesi as well as defender Elias Otieno and Victor Ochieng who joined from Western Stima have all been released by the club.
Also chopped from next year’s plans are Jonathan Mwaniki and Athman Buki.
Kakamega Homeboyz secured a sponsorship deal with the County Government of Kakamega for the 2018 Kenyan Premier League where they hope to carry on their good form that saw them finish fifth in the log.
The team that will now shift their home base to Bukhungu Stadium from Mumias Complex, is, however, looking to rope in four new players in the transfer window.
Homeboyz are also understood to be in talks with a local betting firm that may come in as a second shirt sponsor in what promises to be a good year ahead.
