On Wednesday, Wazito parted ways with Muhammed Mchulla after a string of poor results. “Wazito FC have parted ways with head coach Ahmed Muhammed Mchulla by mutual consent.

“The Directorship of the team are sincerely grateful for the support he has provided in shepherding the team this season. It has truly been fantastic to learn and ensure the team performs at its optimum in the best way possible.

"The decision to hire Okumbi was reached sometime back, and today was just a formality. He is the new coach and it will be made official shortly. The display of the team has been wanting despite the management's effort to provide everything as required.

"The main task for Okumbi is to help the team return to the top tier, he will also have money to sign players he wants in the forthcoming transfer window."

Okumbi, who was also linked with a move to AFC Leopards, attended Wazito’s training session before they played against FC Talanta last weekend.
