“We had a meeting and we agreed that we will not extend the contract. Nyangweso (Benjamin) will continue being in charge of the team. We trust in his abilities and we will only look for someone to assist him.”

“We thank coach Matano for what he has done for us in the two-and-a-half years he has been with us. We have won the East Africa Military Cup twice and done very well in the league in the period he has been around. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors,” Lt. Col. Erick Oloo said.

Matano had previously coached Sofapaka, AFC Leopards and Tusker FC before he replaced Francis Onyiso at Ulinzi Stars. He fell sick in July after winning the 2016 East Africa Military Cup with the team leaving his assistant Benjamin Nyangweso in charge of the season's second leg duties.
