Goal understands Mosomi was willing to step aside but Mureithi requested him to oversee the club's performance

Businessman Francis Mureithi is the new owner of Nakumatt FC, Goal can reveal.

The shoppers have been going through financial problems since last year, with technical bench and players going for months without salaries.

However, all these are history as confirmed by chairman Bernard Mosomi, who has been working hard to ensure the club retains its status. “Yes, it is official we are under new management, Hon. Mureithi is the new owner, he has retained everyone for a seamless transition.

“Our target remains, we want to work harder and finish among the top five by the end of the season.”

Goal understands Mosomi was willing to step aside but Mureithi requested him to oversee the club's performance. 

It is not yet clear how much the businessman paid for the club.
